The U.S. Federal Population Schedule, also known as the Federal Census, is used by genealogists and family historians during the research process to learn the names, ages, birth state, occupations and migration patterns of family members.
Federal Population Schedules are not the only census records kept by the government. Jim Ike will present “The Other Census” at the Computer Club of Oklahoma City Genealogy Group at 9 a.m. Saturday at the CCOKC Resource Center, 3000 United Founders Blvd., Suite 201.
“The Master Genealogist” or “Legacy” genealogy database program forums will meet at 11 a.m. These workshops help family history researchers use computers to assist in the search, organization and publication of information about their family history.
