Do these presenters have a written copies of their lectures that distant
members could purchase, or that could be posted on the CAS website? It
sounds like some very interesting sessions this fall, with this one below,
and the Fairfield Loyalists. I sure wish I were close enough to take
advantage of them!

The US census is a well-known tool for genealogical research. Most of us
use the population schedule to locate ancestors geographically and fill
in blanks in our family histories. We can learn a great deal of
information from these censuses ranging from age to workplace including
birthplace, immigration and literacy.
In this lecture you will learn about additional schedules filled in by
enumerators, primarily in the years 1850-1880. These included:
Mortality, Agriculture, Industry/Manufacture and Social Statistics. Come
and find out the details of your ancestor's life in the world of work
and get an overview of the towns and cities of the period.
Admission is free. However, please RSVP with the number of attendees to
the Historical Collections Department at (203) 576-7417 or via email to
