"Non-Population Census Schedules"
The U.S. Federal Census has been taken every ten years beginning in 1790, but have you wondered if there's more to the census than the population statistics that were captured each decade? Learn to go beyond the population schedules and use the 6 "non-population" schedules taken during 1850-1885, including the agricultural, defective/dependent/delinquent, manufacturing/industrial, mortality, slave, and social statistics schedules. Discover where to locate these schedules, the clues they contain, and strategies of use.

"Stephen P. Morse One-Step Webpages: An In-depth Discussion" presented by Barry Halpern Stephen P. Morse is known to many genealogists as the creator of the "One Step" website. Many of us refer to it as the "Steve Morse website". However it's referred to, it has become an indispensable tool for genealogists doing online research. Because Steve has been building the website for more than ten years, so if you haven't visited it lately, you may be missing something. The website is a portal of window into many genealogy-related websites that many of us already use. However, the One Step website provides additional tools and pathways in and around the world of genealogical research that can be helpful to all of us. Barry Halpern will review the various features of the website, provide hands on examples and guidance in how to get the most of your research time.
