Joe Hardesty, Kentucky history and genealogy librarian at the Louisville Free Public Library, will present a workshop, “US Federal Census Records: What They Can Tell About Our Nation and Our Ancestors” at the August 7program of the Southern Indiana Genealogical Society.
Mr. Hardesty will trace the development of the census record and explain how its changes reveal the historical, political, economic and social direction of the country.
He will discuss the special/supplemental schedules for agriculture, manufacturing, mortality, slave, and veterans which are frequently overlooked by researchers.
Program time is 7 PM in the Strassweg Auditorium of the New Albany-Floyd County Library, 180 W. Spring St., New Albany, Indiana.
