Author and researcher Gena Philibert-Ortega will present “What You Don’t Know About the US Census” at the Santa Barbara County Genealogical Society’s monthly meeting on Saturday, September 18. The meeting and presentation will take place from 9:30 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. via Zoom.

Think you know everything about the US census? Most researchers know some of the ins and outs of researching the decennial census, but they don’t know about some of the other gems the US census provides, including non-population schedules, Census Bureau reports, and more. Learn more about the census so you can use it to create a more in-depth analysis of your ancestor’s life.
