A Trip through Time with the Census
Feb. 23, 2013, 10 AM-12 PM
Ohio History Center

Census records are the key to adding real life to your family history. They contain a wealth of family and social information and rank next to vital statistics in their value to the genealogist. This course examines the kinds of information found within a census and its relationship to the data in other census records. It identifies specific census data information and schedules of special importance to the genealogist. It discusses census availability, uses of indices, special finding aids, and the Internet; and also explains how maps and directories can be used to supplement census data.

Find Your German Ancestor
Mar. 9, 2013, 10 AM-12 PM
Ohio History Center

In recent censuses Anglo-Americans have claimed more German ancestors than from any other European origin. For family historians who don’t speak German, research may seem daunting. This overview explains how researchers can find German origins without knowing much German. Techniques and tips for research in both US and German records will be presented in this class. You will find out ways to use US court records and online sources to trace your German ancestor in America. Also find out the right way to use the web to find your ancestor in Germany. Time will be set aside for class participants to ask specific questions about their research challenges.

Each workshop costs $15 for Ohio Historical Society or Franklin County Genealogical Society members; other guests are $20 per workshop.
