Here Comes the 1950 US Census! What to ExpectSpeaker: Joel Weintraub
The 1950 United States Census will become public on April 1, 2022. Joel Weintraub will prepare us for its debut by covering such topics as what is a census, who uses the census, census caveats, how the 1950 census was taken, training of enumerators, census sampling, census questions, and a summary of the results. He will conclude with a discussion of his and Steve Morse’s 1950 census location tools, online right now at the stevemorse.org website and, time permitting, will demonstrate searches on the One-Step Unified Tool.
Joel Weintraub, a New Yorker by birth, 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 helped produce location tools for the 1900 through 1950 federal censuses and the NY State censuses for NYC (1905, 1915, 1925) for the Steve Morse “One-Step” website. He has published articles on the U.S. census and the 72-year rule, as well as on the difficulties of searching Ellis Island passenger records and NYC census records. He has a YouTube channel that has his genealogy (and biology) talks at “JDW Talks.”
