Using the U.S. Census to Climb Your Family Tree

The United States government has conducted a census of its citizens (and non-citizens) every 10 years since 1790, giving us a snapshot of American families taken at 10-year intervals over much of our nation’s history.

U.S. census records are easy to search for information concerning your family history.

UNFORTUNATELY, no two censuses were alike, and some contain much more useful information than others.

This program reviews examples from various U.S. censuses and demonstrates what family tree information you might expect to find in each.

Access to U.S. census records using Norwin Public Library’s free databases will be demonstrated.

This program will run from 1:00 – 3:00 PM including a question and answer period.

The Program is Free, but REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.

Stop by the circulation desk or call 724-863-4700 x 3 to register!
