The census is often considered the backbone of American research. Few records are as comprehensive for either the United States or Canada (or Great Britain, for that matter). However, few records are as frustrating as well. While most are published online, accessing them can be a challenge. Then there's the problem of finding a person or family in the census. Major portions of our 22 February show will address these problems. Not only will we have census expert, Kathy Hinckley sharing her secrets, but in our interactive segment, we plan to explore two major FREE census sites. Get your browser ready to explore Census Online and the links it has to records all over the U.S. Then we'll compare it to Census Finder, which also has a awesome collection of links.
In our "Research Tip from the Pros" we'll cover one of the most frustrating problems of census research, finding lost families in large cities. It's amazing what you can do with the family's address! Our software tip will help you capture that information and preserve it easily.
Besides all of that, you won't want to miss our free data site of the week, along with a key "what's new" item that will help your research. Be sure to listen, live, or through the archive!
