WCGS Monthly Meeting - State and Territorial Censuses Underused Genealogical Tools
Thursday, October 21
WCGS Monthly Meeting - State and Territorial Censuses Underused Genealogical Tools  (Monthly Meetings)
7:30 pm to 9:00 pm
Online meeting
Presenter:  Bernard Meisner
 
State and Territorial Censuses Underused Genealogical Tools
Genealogists are familiar with the federal census records, however, the state and territorial censuses remain a much under-used resource because they were not taken systematically and centrally archived. In this presentation Mr. Meisner will discuss these other census reports and their value in filling in the gaps between the federal census years, and in providing additional information concerning your families, their occupations, and the places they lived.
