1940 Census: 2 Lectures

Jewish Genealogical Society of Illinois proudly presents Dr. Joel Weintraub:
"The 1940 Census and Online Finding Aids," Two Lectures.

Save the date! Sunday, April 29, 2012 -- 1 p.m. (check-in)

Temple Beth Israel, 3601 W. Dempster Street, Skokie, IL 60076.

Dr. Weintraub is an emeritus biology professor at California State University, Fullerton, and has won awards for his science teaching. He became interested in genealogy about 12 years ago and volunteered for 9 years at the National Archives and Records Administration in southern California. Joel started transcribing streets within census districts in 2001 to help researchers search the 1930 U.S. Census (released in 2002). He was joined in the venture by David Kehs and Stephen Morse in 2002, and together, they have produced several online census searching utilities for both the federal and the New York State censuses on the Morse One Step website. Joel has been working on finder aids for the 1940 census since 2005, and has given talks on that census starting in 2006.

Lecture free to JGSI members Non-members $10 (will apply to JGSI membership when you join by June 1, 2012)
