Recap of Presentation “Finding Your Ancestors in the United States Census Records”

The United States Census Records are vital and or can be key to finding your ancestors. Many of us who may be from the second to 5th generation born in the United States will find that these records are invaluable.

Luckily for us, we have Esther Camacho who provided us with a ton of valuable and actionable information that we can start to use right away. In my own case, I learned a lot about these records and how I can use them to research my wife's family.

She showed us how we can use the United States Census Records to find and or locate our ancestors. She also showed us where we can find the Census Records online and she also provided attendees with examples and or stories of how she has used them in her own research.

Something she also talked about was the mortality schedules and the veteran schedules. They are basically census records of people that have died and also of whom was a veteran.

Recap of what she talked about:

  • Texas Political Map from the 1850's to the 1920s
  • Overview of Heritage Quest
  • Warning About Spellings
  • Research Methods to Effectively Locate your Ancestors
  • Starting dates for each Census

Esther talked in detail on the above topics.

Finally, he showed attendees how to find ancestors on Heritage Quest and provided examples of research methods.
