The Staff of the U.S. Census - free replay of today's webinar now online for limited time


The recording of today's webinar, "The Staff of the U.S. Census" by Seema Kenney is now available to view at for free for a limited time.

Webinar Description

Just who was creating the documents genealogists typically turn to first? What rules did they follow? How long did they have to complete their job? How big is an enumeration district? These questions, and more, probably occur to anyone doing extensive research in the U.S. Census reports. This talk reviews the staffing, training, search for accuracy, penalties for non-cooperation, and bureaucracy of the U.S. Census from 1790 through 1950.
