Following the “72-Year Rule” that protects individual Census records at the National Archives, records from the 1950 U.S. Census will be released to the public on Friday, April 1, 2022. It's never too early to prepare for this valuable data related to U.S. genealogy research! Genealogy researcher Thomas MacEntee will help attendees get up-to-speed on the history of the 1950 U.S. Census, why its form was so radically different than previous forms, and how to access its data. MacEntee will also cover volunteer projects related to indexing and finding aids as well as sources of the latest information related to this exciting release.
This program will be presented using Zoom. Participants must register and provide a working email address to receive the login information.
