Non-Population Census Schedules: Agricultural, Industry, Mortality, Slaves, Social Statistics, State, School and other Specialized Census Records

Presented by Dina Carson

The Census Bureau has been collecting more than personal data since 1810 when they started asking questions about how things were made in the United States. By 1850 they had established six separate schedules to gather data on the population, slaves, mortality, agriculture, manufacturing and social statistics. If you have only been using the Federal Census Schedules to find your family, you may be missing some valuable information.

Dina is the author of 10 books about publishing and genealogy including, Set Yourself Up to Self-Publish: A Genealogist's Guide and Publish Your Family History: A Step-by-Step Guide to Writing the Stories of Your Ancestors. In early 2018, Dina was the coordinator and primary instructor for the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy's course, Writing and Publishing Family Histories in the Digital Age.

American Women in the 19th Century

Presented by Sylvia Tracy-Doolos

America in the 19th century saw geographic, cultural, and historic changes that affected the records that were created. While this was true for all Americans, it was especially true for women. We'll look broadly at the 19th century to understand the changes in women’s lives and the new records that were created.

Sylvia Tracy-Doolos has been interested in genealogy for over thirty years, and working as a genealogist for nine as the owner of New Leaf Genealogy. She is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists (APG), Colorado Genealogical Society (CGS), and Broomfield Genealogy Society.
