Session Number: T115
Title: Did My Family Get Skipped? Mining Census Records for Missing Ancestors
Session Number: T141
You’ve Looked at Pensions, Now What? More Federal Records Documenting Civil War Women
Make Thursday at the conference a day to dig deeper! First up, follow along as we dive into census records searching for those ancestors who got “skipped.” While it was possible for people to be missed in the federal census enumerations, did it really happen to the Charles Stevens family? Did it happen to your family? Then, after lunch, a BCG Skillbuilding session will examine records available at the National Archives in Washington, DC—and some that are online!—which include valuable information on women of the Civil War period. You may have looked at widows’ pensions, but there are so many more possibilities for us to explore!
