Getting Ready for the 1950 Census: Searching with and without a Name Index
Sunday, August 14
Getting Ready for the 1950 Census: Searching with and without a Name Index  (Society Meetings)
1:30 pm
Members Only Free Progam
When the 1950 census was released in April 2022, it did not have a name index. So, finding people in the census will involve searching by location instead. Even when a name index becomes available, there will still be many reasons for doing locational searches.
The census is organized by Enumeration Districts (EDs), so the location needs to be converted to an ED before the census can be accessed. The One-Step website contains numerous tools for obtaining EDs. This talk will present the various tools and show circumstances in which each can be used.
