November 8 and 27 - Missed by the Census Taker?

December 13 - Not Found on a Passenger List?



(See below for details.)









Thursday, November 8, 11:00 a.m.



MISSED BY THE CENSUS TAKER?

Presented by the Staff of RELIC



Census records provide important, detailed information about individuals and families and are one of the most important resources available to researchers. Original census images are now readily available in digital form, but locating an individual of interest in the index is not always easy or straightforward. RELIC Staff will offer tips to find that ancestor whose name is missing from the census indexes.

To register for this free event, contact RELIC at (703) 792-4540 or at .



Tuesday, November 27, 7:00 p.m.

MISSED BY THE CENSUS TAKER?

(See above. This is a repeat of the November 8th program.)

Thursday, December 13, 11:00 a.m.

NOT FOUND ON A PASSENGER LIST?

Presented by the Staff of RELIC

The handwriting on passenger lists is often difficult to read. That presents problems for the indexers and challenges for researchers. RELIC staff will demonstrate some strategies for finding your ancestor in the Ancestry Library Edition¸ Ellis Island and other immigration databases, and suggest alternative sources for learning about your immigrant ancestor's arrival.
