Who Needed it Anyway? Researching Around the Missing 1890 Census  (Program)
10:00 am to 12:00 pm
Online - Zoom
Presented by Sara Cochran
The loss of the 1890 Federal census is a source of great frustration for American Genealogists, but all hope is not lost! After a discussion of the fate of 1890 and what remains, learn strategies, and gather tips for success in locating your family in other records that were created between the 1880 and 1900 Federal censuses. These strategies are also helpful for tracing your family between any set of census records.

Sara is a full-time professional genealogist with over twenty-five years of research experience. Her research has taken her into nearly every State in the USA as well as Ireland, Italy, Austria, and Britain. She holds a Boston University Genealogical Research Certificate, a Bachelor’s Degree in Library Science, and is an alumnus of the ProGen Study Group. She started breaking down  brick walls, discovering the stories of black sheep ancestors, and helping individuals preserve their photographic legacy, in 2016.
