Genealogy Club -- Missing Persons: Finding Your Family in the US Census

Genealogy Club -- Missing Persons: Finding Your Family in the US Census In-Person

The 1950 census has been released, and some of us will find our own name for the first time!  Artificial Intelligence was employed to index the handwritten records, and was surprisingly successful. We will cover some tips to find the individuals we seek, status of the human review of the indexing, and the highlights of the unique information collected in this census. Did you know you can provide corrections as you find errors in the transcription? We will continue to look back in time to previous decennial census records and schedules that may add details to our family stories. 

Sara Campbell returns to meet with us in person. She is a researcher, author and educator. She began her own family research 30 years ago. and has self-published a six generation history book. Serving on her local Historical Commission, she is currently digging deep into the Erving family, who gave their name to the town where she lives in Western Massachusetts. The Ervings left their mark on New Hampshire history as well, when William Erving received a grant for his military service to the Crown, an unincorporated area still known as "Erving's Location."
