Preparation for the 1950 US Census ==> Part 1 - Planning

Are you ready for the release of the 1950 US Federal Census ?

Watch for this graphic, on this Blog, and DearMYRTLE's Blog and Facebook Groups as we will use this for the DearMYRTLE's CensusGenie branding.

This  blog will also carry this branding on the blog posts related to the CensusGenie project.

This is the first in this series and will provide an introduction to what will be posted. As I have done in the past, some blog posts will be Video, others will be typed, all depending on the best way to communicate the content. 

I intend to provide links in the Blog to educational material that may be discussed in a Video.

Here is the first, Overview of this project, Video Recording.

  1. Is there a problem with the sound on this video? I'm not getting any sound here or on youtube. I can play your other videos without any issues. I thought I should let you in in case it's not just a problem with my computer.

    1. Anne,

      Thank you for bringing this to my attention. It had been working as over 100 folks had watched it.

      I think and hope that the sound issue has now been resolved.

      Thank you,


  2. Looking forward to April 2022! And your series.
