The May 2010 Family Tree Magazine, now mailing to subscribers and available for pre-order at Family Tree Shop, celebrates one of genealogists’ favorite resources: the census.
The Census Extravaganza! includes articles on:
- data collected for each US enumeration, from 1790 to 1930 that could solve ancestral mysteries
- What you can do now to be ready to find your ancestors in the 1940 census, set for release in two short (we hope) years
- How to find and use census records from your ancestral homeland
This issue also has guidance on researching Dutch roots, sharing photos online, searching HeritageQuest Online (the historical records service you can access through many public libraries), searching the Daughters of the American Revolution online databases, organizing your hard drive and more.
Of course, you’ll also find our listing of the Family Tree Magazine 40 Best Genealogy Blogs, (which you also can see on our website).
The print version is available for preorder from Family Tree Shop (it comes with a Census Research Toolkit CD, so it costs a little more than the digital download).
