Training to be a Census Sensei – Tuesday’s Tip

Step beyond the US Federal Census returns! On Wednesday, May 14 at 7 pm at the Fountaindale Public Library, Tina Beaird will show you how to use agricultural, manufacturing, school, state, territorial, other special censuses!  Learn how to locate, access, and glean information from these special records, which will provide unique and interesting information about your ancestors!tina

Learn how your ancestor’s taxes supported the school district, what type of crops were grown on their farms, and the cash value of a farm, livestock, machinery and business enterprises.  As many of these special censuses are not available on a federal level, Tina will introduce you to the repositories which house these records, as well as providing online resources to meet your research goals.  You won’t want to miss this program!  Doors open at 6:30 pm, and light refreshments will be included.
