The 1950 Census: One Year Later
The 1950 Census was released on April 1, 2022 after being sealed for 72 years. Since the release date, many of us have tried to find records in the census and have run into various quirks. This presentation will discuss the things that we have learned since opening day. The topics covered are searching the census by name and what was involved in creating a searchable name index, searching the census by location and the various sites that have tools to support this, confusion between census sheets and census pages, transient handling and the Individual Census Reports, and the cross-referencing that was done if nobody was home when the census taker came to call.
