Speaker: Joel Weintraub
Here Comes the 1950 U.S. Census! What to Expect

The 1950 U.S. census will become public on April 1, 2022.

Joel Weintraub will prepare us for its debut by describing the census, how it was taken, its questions and codes, the training of enumerators, and more. He will also briefly discuss his and Steve Morse’s 1950 census location tools, online at SteveMorse.org.

A New Yorker by birth, Joel is an emeritus Biology Professor at California State University, Fullerton. He became interested in genealogy over 20 years ago and volunteered for nine years at the National Archives in southern California. Joel has helped produce location tools for five federal censuses and three NY State censuses for Steve Morse’s “One-Step” website. He has published articles on the U.S. census’s 72-year rule, finding difficult passenger records, and the challenges of searching NYC census records. His YouTube channel at “JDW Talks” features his genealogy talks.
