Root Cellar General Meeting  (General Meetings)
7:00 pm to 8:30 pm

Stephen Morse will present two topics: 

Getting Ready for the 1950 Census: Searching with and without a Name Index

When the 1950 census will be released in April 2022, it will not have a name index. So finding people in the census will involve searching by location instead. Even when a name index becomes available, there will still be many reasons for doing locational searches.

and 

Finding Presidents and their Ancestors in the Strangest Places

We are used to looking for our ancestors in ship manifests and in census records. We have mastered a variety of tricks for finding people in spite of name misspellings and incorrect birth dates. You might think that US presidents are a breed apart from our ancestors, but they are not. They also arrived on ships and have come face-to-face with the census taker.

This talk will show you how to search for presidential records, and you will see that it is no different from searching for ancestral records. We will encounter some of the same problems with both searches, and we'll see how these problems can be solved.

Meetings are held on 2nd Thursdays,  7:00-8:30PM
Christ Community Church,
5025 Manzanita Avenue, Carmichael
 
7:00-8:30 PM  General Membership Meeting followed by a guest speaker.
