Heather Register Zbinden: “Are You My Mother?: Searching for Lost Relatives in the 1950 Census”
CALS Butler Center for Arkansas Studies Presents LEGACIES & LUNCH
Speaker: Heather Register Zbinden
Genealogists have always known about missing relatives hiding in the census. But when it is your own mother, grandmother, and aunt, how do you know when to stop searching? Follow one historian’s search for her mother in the 1950 United States Census and learn about the family lore that solved the puzzle.
