Getting Started with Family History: the U.S. Census In-Person

Have you always wanted to learn more about your family’s history but didn’t know where to start? The U.S. census is one of the first sources you’ll need to explore. Taken every ten years since 1790, it allows you to trace your family over the decades and even centuries. Join us on June 3rd for a virtual program using Zoom to introduce the U.S. census. This session will cover the history of the census, how to access enumeration forms, and how the census can help you discover more about your family’s roots.

Bryna O’Sullivan, a Middletown based professional genealogist and French-to-English genealogical translator, will present this virtual program. As owner of Charter Oak Genealogy, she specializes in lineage society applications. A Connecticut native, she enjoys tracing her family’s roots in the area back to the 1600s.

Registration is required.  You will receive the Zoom link 1 hour before the program begins.
