Upcoming BPL Program — “Getting the Most Out of the Census: Finding Ancestry Clues in Census Records, 1790 – 1940″

From our friends at the BPL Southern History Department:

Getting the Most Out of the Census: Finding Ancestry Clues in Census Records, 1790 – 1940

The Birmingham Public Library (BPL) Southern History Department is hosting a workshop presented by Frazine Taylor on digging deeper into the information found in the censuses that even seasoned researchers overlook.

Ms. Taylor is the retired Head of Reference for the Alabama Department of Archives and History with over twenty years of experience as a librarian, archivist, lecturer, and writer. She is the author of “Researching Your African American Ancestor: A Resource Guide.” One among Taylor’s many honors is working on Tom Joyner’s and Linda Johnson Rice’s segments in the PBS series, “African American Lives 2.”

This workshop does not require registration. Contact the Southern History Department of BPL at 205-226-3665 for more information.
