The time period before 1850 is a challenging one for family history. Record gaps exist, while other records often do not name women and children. How can you bridge those gaps and surmount those obstacles? Come to this program to find out how to use pre-1850 census records and census substitutes effectively in your genealogical research.

Sara Allen is a senior librarian at The Genealogy Center of the Allen County Public Library. She is the administrator of the Mitchell Y-chromosome surname project at FamilyTreeDNA. She has completed several advanced DNA courses at the Genealogical Institute of Pittsburgh (GRIP).
