Sept 2021 Meeting; THE 1950 CENSUS: ARE YOU READY?

Presenter: Thomas MacEntee

Saturday,  Sept 25, 2021   10:30am - 12:00 pm, via Zoom

Many genealogists remember the amount of excitement in April, 2012 around the release of the
1940 US Census. Following the “72 Year Rule” for records at the National Archives, the results
of the 1950 US Census will be made public on Friday, April 1, 2022

Participants will get up to speed on the history of the 1950 Census, why the 1950 US Census form is radically different than previous forms, and how the data will be accessed.  In addition, we’ll cover what you can do NOW to prepare for the release of the 1950 US Census and how you can always get the latest information related to the release of the 1950 US Census data.  


Thomas MacEntee is a professional genealogist specializing in the use of technology and social media to improve genealogical research, and as a means of interacting with others in the family history community.  See for previous appearances from 2009 to the present.  Thomas was laid off after a 25 year career in the IT field so he started his own genealogy-related business called High-Definition Genealogy.  Thomas shares many of his articles and videos for free at https://genealogybargains/free-genealogy-cheat-sheets/
