Getting Ready for the 1950 US Census. A GSBC Program. (online event) Online
Join us before the program for a GSBC General Meeting beginning at 1:30pm ET, where a prize drawing will be held for GSBC members only. The presentation will begin at 2:00pm ET.
Many genealogists remember the amount of excitement in April 2012 around the release of the 1940 US Census. Following the "72 Year Rule" for records at the National Archives, the results of the 1950 US Census will be made public on Friday, April 1, 2022. It is never too early to prepare for this valuable data related to US genealogy research!
Participants will get up to speed on the history of the 1950 US Census, why the 1950 US Census form is radically different than previous forms, and how the images will be accessed on and after April 1, 2022. In addition, we will cover what you can do NOW to prepare for the release of the population schedule images as well as volunteer projects related to indexing and finding aids. Finally, we'll cover how you can always get the latest information related to the release of the 1950 US Census data!
Thomas MacEntee is a professional genealogist specializing in the use of technology and social media to improve genealogical research and as a means of interacting with others in the family history community.
