How To Research Around the 1890 Census Record Loss – Part 1: 1890 Census Fragments

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!!

First up in our series, we are talking about those 1890 census fragments that did survive.

The next video in our series we  will talk about using state census records in the absence of the 1890 census.
