Program Description

Event Details

The United States Federal government has taken a census of its population every ten years since 1790. These census records are a goldmine of information about our families and can provide vital clues to our family history research. Learn what records were produced, which still exist and how to access them. This presentation will include examples of census records, search strategies for locating them and analysis techniques for gleaning the most from these records.

Co-sponsored by the DuPage County Genealogical Society.

This is a hybrid event, with an in-person presenter and both in-person and virtual participants. This registration is to attend virtually. To attend in-person instead, click here.
