Focus of May Meeting: Where Does the Census Lead?

We are all familiar with the US Census, but what do you do next? Census reports are only a starting point. Once you have found your ancestors in the Federal Population Schedule, do you know where to research next?

At our next monthly meeting, Seema-Jayne Kenney will show you some sources to go to after locating your ancestors in the Federal Population Census Reports. Her presentation will talk about the many crossroads your research might take after finding a family in the census and will connect clues from the census to data in more than twenty other sources.

Seem is a wife, mother, and entrepreneur. She started exploring her family history when she was still in high school. Her roots go deep into Colonial New England, especially in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Maine.
In 2010, Seema received her Certificate in Genealogical Research from Boston University. She is currently a member of the Massachusetts Society of Genealogists and the New England Chapter of the
Association of Professional Genealogists.
Those of you who attended the recent NERGC conference in April may recognize her, as she had a very active role in making the conference successful.
