502 West Benjamin Holt Drive, Stockton
The Quest for Pre-1850 Colonials
Presenter: Kathryn Miller Marshall, Ph.D.
At some point in the quest to find our ancestors, we need to be equpped to cross the great census divide and move our family history research back before 1850.
The challenge with that, of course, is the lack of itemization of names of anyone in each family, other than the head of household, in every U.S. census enumeration occurring before 1850. To trace family members before that landmark year, we need to employ other types of documentation.
We are delighted that our speaker for tonight's meeting is equipped to provide us numerous tips on how to proceed with our pre-1850 research. We welcome back Dr. Kathryn Miller Marshall, who has been enthusiastically received by our members in the past. A speaker at numerous genealogical seminars and conferences, Dr. Marshall served for sixteen years as Director of the Lodi California Family History Center.
Please join us tonight in welcoming Dr. Marshall back to Stockton, as we return to the Troke Library for our 2015 general membership meeting series.
