Member Merilee Mulvey reports reading a great tip from the Ancestry.com blog on researching pre-1850 census records. She shares a link to the webpage featuring a video interview with accredited genealogist, Peggy Clemens Lauritzen. View Video
Merilee also suggests if any SGS member has a membership to Ancestry.com (or using the library’s membership in the genealogy room), they can also click on a link below the video that will take them to the charts/forms section on Ancestry.com where blank copies of census forms and charts can be found to copy, download, and use to track ancestors. These forms have been a huge assistance to me when searching ancestors’ timelines for missing census records, etc.
Next SGS monthly meeting: Wednesday, January 20th, 7:00 p.m.
