Southern Indiana Genealogical Society To Discuss Census Records
The Southern Indiana Genealogical Society will meet on Thursday, August 7 in the Strassweg Auditorium of the New Albany-Floyd County Public Library (180 W. Spring St., New Albany IN). Joe Hardesty, Kentucky history and genealogy librarian at the Louisville Free Public Library, will present a session, "US Federal Census Records: What They Can Tell About Our Nation and Our Ancestors." Mr. Hardesty will trace the development of the census record and explain how its changes reflect the historical, political, economic and social direction of the country. He will also discuss the supplemental schedules for agriculture, manufacturing, mortality, slave, and veterans, which are sometimes overlooked by researchers. Program time is 7 PM - for more information, please visit http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~insigs/nextmeet.htm.
