“Heritagequest Online Part 3: Censuses”

Donald R. Snow

Categories: IR, RR

Talk Abstract:
HeritageQuest Online (HQO) is a website that is free through libraries by using your public library card barcode. It has many family history resources and you can use it at home for free. This class is Part 3 of a series and deals with the census records on HQO which includes all the U.S. federal and Canadian censuses. Some of the U.S. files here are from different filmings than on other websites and may be more legible here. It also has different indexes and ways to search than other websites, so it is worth checking. Previous classes in this series have discussed the books and texts, U.S. Revolutionary Ward Records, and many other state and local records on HQO. Future classes will discuss newspapers, obituaries, and other items on it. The notes for this class, with active links and related articles, are posted on my website https://uvtagg.org/classes/dons/dons-classes.html .
