Citizen Archivists: Indexing and Searching the 1950 U.S. Census
Ancestry and FamilySearch have used cutting-edge technology to scan and index 150 million handwritten responses from the recently released 1950 U.S. Census. However, the resulting searchable text is not perfect. Join us for this nationwide effort to verify and correct the transcription and help bring to light the hidden stories of people of all backgrounds in the United States!
While we’ve blocked out three hours of time, feel free to come and go as you like. Bring your laptop/tablet (you can even use your phone!) or use one of our computers. Coffee and light refreshments will be served.
