The Genealogy Group @ The Library is for people interested in learning about genealogy and family history. This session will feature census information. The 1940 census will soon be available. Tips and websites for census research will be shared. On April 1, 1940, there were 132,164,569 people living in America. And today, 87 percent of Americans can find a direct family link to one – or more – of them.
When the 1940 U.S. Federal Census is opened to the public this April, you’ll have a window into every one of those 132 million lives. Their names, where they lived, who shared their house, even where they were five years earlier.
Genealogy is one of the most popular hobbies in America. The group is intended for both beginning and experienced genealogists. Meets - Thursday April 12 at 7 p.m.
