Do you remember the excitement in April 2012 around the release of the 1940 U.S. Census? Who did you find once the census was released – your grandparents, your parents, yourself? Following the “72 Year Rule” for records at the National Archives, the results of the 1950 U.S. Census will be made public on Friday, April 1, 2022! It’s never too early to prepare for researching this valuable data related to U.S. genealogy research!
Join us Friday, October 22 at 5:45 p.m. ET via Zoom for The 1950 U.S. Federal Census – Are You Ready? presented by Thomas MacEntee and co-sponsored by Clarke-Oconee Genealogical Society and the Athens-Clarke County Library Heritage Room.
Participants will learn about the history of the 1950 U.S. Census, why the 1950 U.S. Census form is radically different than previous forms, and how the data will be accessed. In addition, he will cover what you can do NOW to prepare for the release of the 1950 U.S. Census as well as volunteer projects related to indexing and finding aids. Finally, he will cover how you can get the latest information related to the release of the 1950 U.S. Census data!
