Think You Know the Census? Think Again!

 by Peggy Jude

Peggy Jude

The US Census is a starting place for many family history researchers. We find our family, record their information, and move on.  But did you really get everything out of the census? What else can it tell you? Do you know how to work with pre-1850 census tick marks? Have you explored the other census types?  Join us for a session on maximizing the use of the census.   

Peggy has been conducting genealogical research for her family and clients for over 40 years. She leads the DNA Special Interest Group for the Manatee Genealogical Society (FL) and serves as Vice President. She specializes and teaches in five areas of genealogical interest: DNA, Genealogical Methods and Records, Swedish Genealogy, Genealogical Technology, and Preserving Family History and Family Heirlooms. She holds a BS in Zoology from Iowa State University and an MBA from the University of Michigan. Following a successful career as a Global Human Resources Executive, she opened her genealogical business centered on the west coast of Florida. Peggy is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists, and an alumnus of multiple advanced genealogical institutes.
