10:30 to 11:30 a.m., at the New York State Library, Cultural Education Center, seventh floor, Librarian’s Room, 222 Madison Ave., Albany.
Tracing your ancestors through the federal and state censuses requires detective skills. What censuses survive for New York? Where can you go to search them? Where can you go to get copies of the blank forms? What clues in the earlier censuses can help you decide if you have the right family?
Using census records in the State Library, Senior Librarian Stephanie Barrett will discuss research strategies and the use of the census in genealogical research. Registration is required.
