Join us as we explore what has proven to be one of the most valuable record sets available to genealogists today. Despite being widely available and easily accessible online, many family researchers never actually tap into the full potential of the U.S. federal census schedules because they simply haven’t learned to recognize and utilize everything they contain. In this course, you will learn the basics: what the census is and why it is created, how to search it effectively, and what kind of unique information you can expect to find in various years. We’ll also show you how to interpret and use the data you find to build a strong foundation for future research.
