1:00 P.M.: “1890 CENSUS SUBSTITUTES”
SPEAKER: Lisa Schumacher
Family history researchers rely heavily on Census records from 1790 to 1940. However, most of the 1890 census is not available. What happened and what can be done to fill in the 1880-1900 gap? Learn about other resources that can provide information for this time period.
Lisa Schumacher has thirty years of experience in the computer field and is currently a self-employed technical support consultant. Her interest in family history began twenty years ago with a focus on computer programs that can be used in genealogical research. Lisa is Past-President of the South Bay Cities Genealogical Society (Torrance, CA). She was a staff supervisor and instructor at the Los Angeles Family History Center for seven years. She lectures on various topics throughout the Los Angeles South Bay area.
2:30 P.M.: “SANBORN MAPS”
SPEAKER: Judy Janes
Sanborn Maps are a great resource for genealogists who long to learn more about the homes and buildings where their ancestors lived in America. Created in the 19th and 20th centuries for fire insurance purposes, these detailed maps can help you find exact locations. Judy Janes will show us how to access these maps, which are particularly valuable when buildings no longer exist.
