Find & Use Historical Census Data to Bring the Past to Life
Registration is closed for this event
In the past, we have covered the topic of finding and interpreting statistics and other numerical data in a number of ways. We'll continue that theme with a discussion about how to access and assess historical census information. A rich collection of free data is only a few clicks away--from FDsys, THOMAS, Statistical Abstracts and the U.S. Census Bureau, Social Explorer, and other online services. Join us to find out how to move between paid services available through the Ohio Web Library, like Ancestry.com, and freely available online sources to build more robust research results.
This session will focus on finding historical data through a variety of sources and would be useful to anyone working in reference or instruction services, as well as those working with genealogists and local historians.
