From the Library – NEXT WEDNESDAY (11/17/21): New York State Censuses: You Won’t Believe What’s Hiding In There! During the Next Meeting of the IPL Genealogy Group
Jeanette Sheliga, a Genealogy Lecturer from Western New York, will join the IPL Genealogy Group for their last meeting of 2021 to give a presentation on New York State Censuses: You Won’t Believe What’s Hiding In There!
New York State conducted ten State Censuses between 1825-1925. Some of the questions asked for the State Censuses provide details prior to the beginning of civil registrations and decades before a similar question was asked on the US Census. If you have New York State genealogy research to do, this is a record collection that you’ll want to familiarize yourself with.
New York State Censuses: You Won’t Believe What’s Hiding In There! will be held online via Zoom on Wednesday, November 17, at 7:00 PM. If you’d like to attend this virtual meeting, please register now through our Event Calendar. Participants will receive an email with the login information for Zoom before the meeting begins.
