DOUBLE PRESENTATION with Speaker: Dr. Steve Morse, PhD.
One-Step Webpages: A Potpourri of Genealogical Search Tools
Getting Ready For The 1950 Census
Sunday April 3, 1pm Pacific Time/ 4pm Eastern
Free to Members, $5.00 to Guests
Description: The One-Step website started out as an aid for finding passengers in the Ellis Island database. Shortly afterwards it was expanded to help with searching in the 1930 census. Over the years it has continued to evolve and today includes about 300 web-based tools divided into 16 separate categories ranging from genealogical searches to astronomical calculations to last-minute bidding on ebay. This presentation will describe the range of tools available and give the highlights of each one.
Description: When the 1950 census will be 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 use.
Bio: Dr. Steve Morse, PhD., creator of the “One-Step” web pages, has been a mainstay of genealogy research, inventing many tools that ease research work for both the novice and the experienced genealogist. He managed to get EllisIsland.org to use his approach in order to ease research on that site and has developed special tools that help handle data as each new U.S. census has been released. For details on his enormous number of research aids.
