Focus on the Census -- Genealogy Mtg. next Sunday
Effective Use of the Census
Jewish Genealogical Society of Sacramento
Sunday, April 13, 2008, 10 a.m.
Glenda Lloyd, a Sacramento genealogist, will present tips on using census data to help research your family tree. The "backbone of American genealogy," census information puts your family in a specific location every 10 years from 1790 to 1930. State and local censuses can lead you to land, immigration and naturalization records.
Glenda is a fourth-generation Californian who served as the first president of Root Cellar/Sacramento Genealogical Society. She teaches genealogy through adult education classes in the San Juan School District and has also presented programs for many local genealogy societies as well as for Family History Day at the State Archives.
All are welcome to attend the Sunday, April 13, 10 a.m. meeting at the Albert Einstein Residence Center, 1935 Wright St., Sacramento. It's also an opportunity to make use of the group's extensive genealogy library.
