Genealogy Workshop: Historic Census Records at the Library of Virginia

When: Fri., Aug. 9, 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. 2019

Led by Library staff members Mary Clark, director of acquisitions and access management, archivist Kevin Shupe and editor John Deal, this workshop will illuminate the particulars of each census, suggesting potential search strategies, tips for finding missing ancestors, and ways to mine the census for more information.
