St. Cloud Area Genealogists – “Finding Family in the 1950 U.S. Census” with Mary Wickersham

September 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Save the date for SCAG’s September meetup “Finding Family in the 1950 U.S. Census” with presenter Mary Wickersham. Tuesday, September 20 @ 7pm.

Many genealogists know that images of the 1950 U.S. Census of Population and Housing were made available online on April 1, 2022. Since then, volunteers from around the country have been indexing the records. While this is a wonderful resource, many researchers still struggle to find their relatives in the images.

Genealogist Mary Wickersham will present “Finding Family in the 1950 Census” for the St. Cloud Area Genealogists on Tuesday, September 20, 2022 at 7 p.m. at Stearns History Museum. The presentation will be offered synchronously online. Wickersham will show participants how to use the National Archives and Records Administration’s artificial intelligence-based index, other online indexes as well as offer tips for finding family you can’t find in the indexes.

Mary Wickersham has been a researcher for more than 25 years and is an avid genealogy volunteer. She is a longtime member of and volunteer for the Minnesota Genealogical Society and the Irish Genealogical Society International and has served on the boards of both organizations. She is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists.
