      Dr. Louise Henry, experienced researcher and DAR Certified Genealogist, will present a program entitled “The Scots Irish: WHO were they?  WHEN did they emigrate?  WHERE did they go in North America?  WHY did they leave Scotland?  Ireland?”  Dr. Henry is a charter member of Saint Simons Chapter of Colonial Dames of the 17th Century and currently serves as chapter president.  She is an officer in the Fort Frederica Chapter of DAR, as well as Saint John's Parish Chapter of the Daughters of the American Colonists.  She is a member of Jamestowne Society and U.S. Daughters of 1812.  She was a scientific researcher for 27 years.

        

      Visitors are welcome and encouraged to attend.  Reports will be given concerning the Saint Simons Island Library Genealogical Collection Project.  Also to be discussed are a field trip to the Huxford Genealogical Society Library and research assistance for the public.  For additional information, please telephone Rob Lear at 265-5916.

      CAUTIONS FOR USING AND INTERPRETING CENSUS INFORMATION

       

      It is important to locate families in all census years.  The information in the census can be unreliable, but conflicting information will often come to light when you examine different years.  Always question the reliability of data.

       

      Remember:

                  Any given piece of information may be incorrect.

                  Be suspicious of reported ages.  [The younger the age, the greater the accuracy.]

        Names used by an individual may not be the same as those found in civil registration or church records.

                  Names of places and people may be misspelled or spelled as they sound.

                  Individuals missing from a household should be listed elsewhere in the census.
