SFBAJGS, San Francisco, Sunday, February 9, 2020: Getting Ready for the 1950 Census: Searching with and without a Name Index


Topic:  Getting Ready for the 1950 Census: Searching with and without a Name Index
Speaker:  Dr. Steve Morse

Sunday, February 9, 2020
San Francisco Public Library, Main Branch
Latino/Hispanic Room
100 Larkin Street
San Francisco, CA 94102

Program begins 1:30 p.m.

When the 1950 census is released in April 2022, it will not have a name index.  So finding people in the census will involve searching by location instead.  Even when a name index becomes available, there will still be many reasons for doing locational searches.  The census is organized by Enumeration Districts (EDs), so the location needs to be converted to an ED before the census can be accessed.  The One-Step Website contains numerous tools for obtaining EDs. This talk will present the various tools and show circumstances in which each can be used.

Steve Morse is the creator of the One-Step Website, for which he has received both the Lifetime Achievement Award and the Outstanding Contribution Award from IAJGS, the Award of Merit from the National Genealogical Society, the first ever Excellence Award from the Association of Professional Genealogists, and two awards that he cannot pronounce from Polish genealogical societies.  In his other life Morse is a computer professional with a doctorate degree in electrical engineering.  He has held various research, development, and teaching positions, authored numerous technical papers, and written four textbooks and holds four patents.

Meetings are free and everyone interested is welcome to attend.  For more information visit http://www.sfbajgs.org/.
