Want to research your family tree? The U.S. census can help you get started. Taken every 10 years since 1790, it allows us to trace families over time and provides information about their occupations, land ownership, military service and more. Join Bryna O'Sullivan for a virtual program introducing the U.S. census. Participants will learn how to navigate the census, what information it can provide and how to use that information to locate other useful sources.
Registration begins May 6, online or by calling the library’s Reference Department at 860-652-7720. Registration with a valid email address is required in order to receive login information on the day of the Zoom meeting.
