Program Description


Library staff from the Genealogy and Local History Department at Fort Bend County Libraries will show the beginning family researcher how to trace family history using census records from 1790 to 1950, which may contain information such as family members’ names, birthplace of parents, professions, military service, and other details that were significant during different periods. Special census records – such as the 1890 Veteran Census, as well as the Slave, Mortality, and Indian schedules – will also be discussed.
