Centuries of Censuses: What Census Instructions Can Teach Us

Presented by Sylvia Tracy-Doolos. Instructions to enumerators differed every ten years and can tell us a lot about what was going on in the country. Understanding the details hidden in the census can help us take advantage of the information gathered and help us understand the context of our ancestor's times. Sylvia Tracy-Doolos has been interested in genealogy for nearly forty years and working as a professional genealogist for ten as the owner of New Leaf Genealogy. She is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists (APG), and several local societies. Sylvia is President of the International Society of British Genealogy and Family History (ISBGFH), and the Wales, Ireland, Scotland, England Family History Society (WISE-FHS), and Secretary of the Colorado branch of APG. She has a B.A. in History and minored in English focusing on linguistics, so she could study how language changes affected American record keeping. Registration closes Friday, July 17 at 5:00 PM.
