General Meeting & Presentation: Getting Ready for the 1950 Census: Searching With and Without a Name Index by Steve Morse
January 18 @ 1:00 pm
When the 1950 census will be released in April 2022, it will not have a name index. So finding people in the census will involve searching by location instead. Even when a name index becomes available, there will still be many reasons for doing locational searches.
The census is organized by Enumeration Districts (EDs), so the location needs to be converted to an ED before the census can be accessed. The One-Step website contains numerous tools for obtaining EDs. This talk will present the various tools and show circumstances in which each can be used.
Stephen Morse is the creator of the One-Step Website for which he has
received both the Lifetime Achievement Award and the Outstanding
Contribution Award from the International Association of Jewish
Genealogical Societies, Award of Merit from the National Genealogical
Society, first-ever Excellence Award from the Association of
Professional Genealogists, and two awards that he cannot pronounce
from Polish genealogical societies.
In his other life Morse is a computer professional with a doctorate
degree in electrical engineering. He has held various research,
development, and teaching positions, authored numerous technical
papers, written four textbooks, and holds four patents. He is best known
as the architect of the Intel 8086 (the granddaddy of today’s Pentium
processor), which sparked the PC revolution nearly 40 years ago.
