Understanding the historical genesis and management of the decennial Federal Census, the digitization or "indexing" of the Census by FamilySearch, and the proper utilization of Census records in Ancestry is important to good Hygienealogy. And in Ancestry, Federal Census records don't always work the same way - some add all family members to your tree at once, while others only add one person at a time. So, why is that? And what ARE all of the origins of these records? I'll talk about that today in Hygienealogy 2: The Federal Census. You're going to want to listen to this one twice - once just to hear it, and another time in front of Ancestry so you can see the screens I'm describing. We're making up for lost time, folks!
