Overcoming the Hurdle of the 1890 Census  


The destruction of the majority of the 1890 Census creates a 20-year gap (1880-1900) in tracing ancestors, a particular hardship for those researching African Americans who universally were listed as citizens in the 1870 Census. This presentation will cover other sources of information for capturing our ancestors during this period.
