SGGS Meeting: Tuesday January 24 – Getting Ready for the 1940 Census

Steve Morse will be speaking at the Sacramento German Genealogy Society meeting on January 24. His topic is “Getting Ready for the 1940 Census.” Although this census will be released on April 2, 2012, it will not have a name index, and probably won't have a complete one for at least six months. Therefore the only way to access the census is by Enumeration District (ED), and therefore researchers will have to determine the EDs for their respective locations. That's where the “One Step” ED tools that Steve Morse has developed will come to the rescue. At this meeting, Morse will instruct us on how to get a head start on finding the link to the census images for a given ED, even though the links will not be operational until April 2.
Meeting time & location: Tuesday, January 24, beginning at 1 p.m. at St. Marks Methodist Church on Lusk Drive at St. Marks Way, east of the Country Club Plaza Shopping Center (2391 Saint Marks Way, Sacramento). Meetings are held in MacMurdo Hall, on the basement level. An elevator is available. Guests are welcome.
We advise attendees to arrive early, perhaps at 12:30 or even a little earlier, in order to have opportunities 1) to look over the books for sale, 2) to discuss a problem with a “Quick Questions” expert, or 3) to become acquainted with other services that SGGS offers. Admission is free.
