The Census is an excellent genealogical tool for finding information about your ancestors and family. Sometimes, however, our ancestors seem to have escaped the census taker or the census indexer. Learn why you are having trouble finding your people in the census and discover strategies to track them down or find substitutes for missing census records. Share success stories and learn how to make the most of your census research.

Bonus Door Prize:
There will be several door prizes. Dr. McCoy, president of Find-Your- will be offering as a door prize one hour of her services (worth $50.) This gift certificate is good for one hour of genealogical research or coaching on genealogy.
