4126 Executive Drive in La Jolla
Program New "Navigating the New York State Census with Fewer Tears"
Presenter: Joel Weintraub, Ph.D., Joel Weintraub was born and raised in
Manhattan. He presently is an emeritus Biology Professor at California
State University Fullerton and has won awards for his science teaching.
He became interested in genealogy several years ago, and regularly
volunteers at the National Archives and Records Administration. Joel
started transcribing streets within census districts to help
researchers search the 1930 U.S. Census. He was joined in the venture
by David Kehs and Stephen Morse, and together, they have produced a
large number of online census searching utilities. Recently Joel
expanded his interests to the New York State censuses of 1905-1925. New
York City and State censuses were taken between the federal census
years. Many of the New York State census records are available on FHL
microfilm. However, most of the New York State Census records are not
indexed. It is well known that the New York State censuses often
contain data not found in the Federal census schedules, or not found in
the Federal census until many years later. The 1925 New York census
asked for the date and place of naturalization. Two copies of both the
1915 and 1925 census were made, one copy being sent back to the County
and another set for the whole State is at the New York State Archives.
There is a $3 fee for non-members; this fee will be waived for those
choosing to join at the meeting
