      Speaker:  A video by Americanancestors.org

From  American Ancestors:

                               The 1950 Census is here!

   “With the release of the 1950 U.S. Federal Census, family historians of all levels are primed to uncover new-or to verify already-known– information about their ancestry. 

   Using new machine learning and optical character recognition technology, this is the first time that a census will be searchable upon its release on the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) website. 

   In this session, Vice President of Library and Research Services Lindsay Fulton will discuss what information is provided, how to search the indexed and non-indexed databases, and provide tips on how the 1950 census can be a springboard to other records."

               We hope you will join us -  invite your friends.
              WVGS programs are always open to the public.
