Monthly Meeting – September 1st, 2022 – “1950 Census Updates: Searching with and without a Name Index” by Stephen P. Morse

The 1950 Census was released in April 2022, and a name index has slowly become available. Are you familiar with the 1950 Census, and the many updates since its release? We must remember finding people in the census can involve searching by location. There will still be many reasons for doing locational searches. The census is organized by Enumeration District (EDs), so the location needs to be converted to an ED before the census can be accessed. The One-Step website contains numerous tools for obtaining EDs. This talk will present various tools, and show circumstances in which each can be used.

Stephen P. Morse was given the Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Association Jewish Genealogical Societies in 2006, the APGQ Excellence Award, and the National Genealogical Society – Award of Merit in 2007. It was in recognition of exceptional contributions to the field of Genealogy. His “One-Step” search tools have assisted genealogists greatly by making it easier to find their ancestors within existing large genealogical databases. He is a computer professional who holds a doctorate degree in electrical engineering. He is best known as the architect of the Intel 8086 which sparked the PC revolution.
