The release of the 1950 Census this year will provide genealogists with an important tool for researching ancestors. This talk will provide a hands-on, step-by-step introduction to the 1950 Census. It will include stories about the social and economic changes documented in the decade after the 1940 Census. It will also provide detailed instructions on how to use SteveMorse.org “One-Step” website to find Enumeration Districts and how to use City Directories to find where people lived at the time the census was taken.

This program is possible through the generous support of the William M. Lowenstein Genealogical Research Endowment Fund of the Jewish Community Foundation.
