Instructions to enumerators differed every ten years and can tell us a lot about what was going on in the country. Understanding the details hidden in the census can help us take advantage of the information gathered and help us understand the context of our ancestor's times.

She is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists (APG), and several local societies.
