1950 Census to be Released in 2022

SGS member Pat Rongey reminds us of an upcoming release of the U.S. 1950 Census! According to the ’72-Year Rule’, census records are to be released to the general public by the National Archives 72 years after the Census Day. As such, the 1950 census records are scheduled to be released in April, 2022.

3 p.m. @ The Mustard Seed
509 Kingwood Street
The Public is invited!

The Siuslaw Genealogical Society will present a pre-recorded webinar introducing DNA Painter on January 20th, 3 p.m. at the Mustard Seed, 509 Kingwood Street. The webinar will take us through setting up a profile in DNA Painter and demonstrate the step by step procedure to display a visual representation of the chromosome segments you share with a DNA match. The graphic may be the key to help narrow down relationship possibilities and clues of your research.

  • Wondering what to do with your matches?
  • Confused about chromosome mapping?
  • Ever think about which ancestor you inherited an actual chromosome segment of DNA from?

Join us on January 20th for this exciting, free presentation.  The public is invited. DNA painter is among the leading resources of genetic genealogy and is available in both a free version or a paid plan.

Also, cast your vote for the selection of a possible new SGS logo at the January 20th meeting! View your email for images of the logo choices!
