Jewish genealogy: Census records

Sun April 10, 2022 at 10:00 am - 11:00 am

The Mount Zion Jewish Genealogy small group invites the entire Mount Zion community to join us as we explore the US 1950 census results that were recently released on April 1st of this year.  The census reports are routinely made public 72 years after the year in which they were taken.  For many of us (i.e., those 72 or older), this may be the first time we will find ourselves identified in an actual census. And most of us will be able to find information about our relatives in 1950 (e.g., personal data, household members, professions), and to figuratively walk up and down their streets to see who their neighbors might have been.  It will also be fascinating to see the manner and extent to which religious affiliation was addressed at the time – as compared to prior decades where, at most, strong clues could be found when “Yiddish” or”Jewish” was as stated as being the “mother tongue” of those responding. Hope you can join us!
