England Census Records 1841-1921 - Presented by David Flint
England Census Records are one of the three main record groups you are likely to use for researching your ancestors in England. This presentation provides an overview of census records in England Wales from 1841 up to the recently released 1921 Census. It includes discussion of details included in the census returns and the evolution of the census forms and content for those years. A brief overview of pre-1841 population lists that can be used for pre-census research is also covered. A printed handout with selected bibliography for additional reading is provided.
 
This will be a "Hybrid Meeting."  We will be meeting in person at the Sorensen Library, and on Zoom.  The Library Meeting Room doors will open at noon.  The link to the Zoom meeting will become active at approximately 12:30 pm.
 
All are welcome.  To join the meeting via Zoom, click on the meeting link below on August 20th:
