The loss of the 1890 U.S. Census is a stumbling block for many genealogy researchers. “Losing” our ancestor in 1890 is the cause of many brick walls, but we do have research options to overcome these brick walls.
Devon Lee from the Family History Fanatics and I have teamed up once again to bring you an 8-part video series focusing on how to research around the 1890 census loss. We want to take the overwhelm out of researching your ancestors during the 1890 US Census Loss time period. And yes, we will have fun along the way!!
Researching land records for the years surrounding 1890 are another option for learning about your ancestor in spite of the 1890 census loss. I’m talking about how to use land records to find our ancestors in the 1890’s this 7th video of our 8-part genealogy video series.
