      FAMILY TREE COLUMN –with JANET REAKES

      The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has announced the
      release of the 1880 United States Census on CD-ROM. The database is the
      culmination of 17 years and 11.5 million hours of work and fills 56
      CD-ROMs. Researchers can quickly access information on the 50,475,336
      inhabitants of the 38 states and eight territories that
      were part of the United States at the time. "Because the 1890 Census was

      destroyed by fire, there is no other federal source like this for 20
      years," said David E. Rencher, director of the Family History Library in

      Salt Lake City, Utah.

      Copies of the CD set can be purchased from The Church of Jesus Christ of
      Latter-day Saints, PO Box 2723, Carlingford Court NSW 2118 for $89.10.
      Phone orders by credit card accepted on 0298415 333.

      You should shortly be able to see it for free at The Church’s family
      history centre in Hervey Bay.

      The reason why this CD-ROM would be interesting to someone with
      Australian and British Isles ancestry is that branches of your tree
      could easily have ended up in the US. It was often the case where one
      brother went to America, another to Australia and one to Canada or New
      Zealand. I know several of my Reakes relatives migrated at various times
      to the USA.
