The 1950 U.S. census will become public on 1 April 2022. Joel Weintraub will prepare us for its debut by describing the census, how it was taken, its questions and codes, the training of enumerators, and more. He will also briefly discuss his and Steve Morse’s 1950 census location tools, available at SteveMorse.org.
A New Yorker by birth, speaker Joel Weintraub is an emeritus Professor of Biology at California State University at Fullerton. He became interested in genealogy more than 20 years ago and volunteered for nine years at the National Archives in Southern California. Joel has helped produce location tools for five federal censuses and three New York State censuses for Steve Morse’s One-Step Website. He has published articles on the U.S. census’ 72-year rule, finding difficult passenger records, and the challenges of searching NYC census records. His YouTube channel at “JDW Talks” features his genealogy talks.
