Census Records: Census Clues can Sometimes Confuse

 

Anyone who has ever tried to piece together a family history knows about Census Records. What do they really tell us? The first U.S. census was done in 1790 and since that time one has been done every 10 years! This class will discuss not only U.S Federal Census Records but State Census Records as well. You will learn who was counted and why, what questions were asked, which schedules are available for each census, researching special populations and how to put all of this together to learn more about your family!

​​​Homes on the Prarie: The Real Life Saga and Travels of the Ingalls Family

 

There are very few people who haven't heard of Laura Ingalls Wilder or Little House on the Prairie! Thanks to her books and the television show that followed, we have been able to get a glimpse into the life of these pioneers. In reality, Laura's story begins long before she was even born. Where did her family come from and what prompted them to move from a little house in the woods of Wisconsin into the uncharted frontier of South Dakota.  Learn the true story of Laura and her family as we compare and contrast the books and television series with what really happened in their lives.   Join me in discovering the ups, downs, triumphs, and tragedies of this beloved family.
