Genealogy Workshop | Historic Census Records

August 9, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm


Preregistration required: historiccensusrecords.eventbrite.com

United States Census records provide a framework for initial genealogical research as well as offering significant clues to comprehending a bigger picture of a person’s life—his or her family relations, community, migrations, and livelihood. Led by Library staff members Mary Clark (director of acquisitions and access management), Kevin Shupe (archivist), and John Deal (editor), this workshop will illuminate the particulars of each census, suggesting potential search strategies, tips for finding missing ancestors, and ways to mine the census for more information.

This event complements the Library’s current exhibition, “New Virginians: 1619–2019 & Beyond,” presented by the Library and Virginia Humanities, a Legacy Project of the 2019 Commemoration, American Evolution.
