Today with online databases offering easy access to U.S. census records, opportunities for discovery have never been easier. So, take advantage of our April presentation to hone your skills in researching the data-laden census records of the Twentieth Century.
Teresa’s presentation will focus ways to mine the trove of genealogical information embedded in Twentieth Century census records. She will cover much more than just names, ages, and residences. The records are chock full of other information for the genealogist. With the right approach, these censuses, both alone and collectively, can provide a wonderfully detailed snapshot of family life across the decades. Plus, if you know where and how to look, the records can point to additional data hidden in municipal, state, and church records. This will be a fact-filled presentation designed for all genealogists, no matter their skill level. Don’t miss it.
Speaker: Teresa Devine. Teresa began dabbling in family history research more than ten years ago, but didn’t get serious about genealogy until 2011 when her oldest living paternal relative passed away taking her memories of the family. with her. Teresa realized that family stories can easily disappear unless someone purposely works to save them. She specializes in southern U.S. research, serves on the Lineage Research committee for the Andrew Carruthers DAR chapter, and her daughters were recently accepted into the Mayflower Society based on Teresa’s research. She is a board member of our Austin Genealogical Society and a member of the Williamson County Genealogical Society.
