- Release of the 1930 U.S. Census
The U.S. National Archives and Records Administration will release
the 1930 Federal population census for the first time on April 1,
2002. At that time, the microfilmed copies will be available for
research at the National Archives Building in Washington, DC, at
13 of the National Archives regional facilities across the nation,
and through the National Archives rental program.
The 1930 census is the 15th Federal census mandated by the U.S.
Constitution, which states, "The actual Enumeration shall be made
within three Years after the first Meeting of the Congress of the
United States, and within every subsequent Term of ten Years, in
such Manner as they shall by Law direct...".
The 1930 census consists of 2,667 rolls of population schedules
and 1,587 rolls of Soundex indexes for 12 southern states,
totaling 4,254 rolls. Even though the statistical summaries
collected by enumerators are made public shortly after the census
is taken, information on individuals and families is restricted by
law for privacy reasons for 72 years. [92 Stat. 915; Public Law
95-416; October 5, 1978].

Creators of Geneweaver for your family health history
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Plymouth, MI, December 6, 2001Genes & Things, Inc., a Michigan
corporation, is proud to announce the release of its new product
GeneWeaver, a genealogy-based family health history computer software
program. GeneWeaver was created by professional genealogists for use by
genealogists, health care professionals, and anyone who is concerned about
family health issues or who is unsure of how to go about creating a family
health history and medical genogram.
The American Medical Association recommends every family maintain a family
health history. A family can learn much about its future by examining its
past since genetic factors are known to underlie all aspects of health and
disease. GeneWeaver can assist in providing health care workers with the
background information they need to give individuals and families
appropriate preventive health care, diagnosis, and medical treatment.
GeneWeaver, a Windows based program, has the ability to generate the
following printable charts/tables:
* A medical genogram
* A medical pedigree chart
* A blank four-page health questionnaire
* A bibliography of family health history and genetics publications
* A checklist of health information resources
GeneWeaver is easy to use and understand with a Web browser look and feel.
The program allows the user to input family information using either a
GEDCOM import or manual entry. The health wizard facilitates the entry of
medical information into predetermined fields using a health history
questionnaire. The user is able to select an illness from a modern medical
terms list or find the meaning of an obscure term in the outdated medical
terms list in Help. Multiple databases can be created. The 102-page
GeneWeaver manual (hardcopy and included in online Help), written in
everyday language, educates the user about the family health history
concept and discusses how and where to find health and medical information.
An extensive list of medical and health record sources is provided. Free
technical support is available to registered users either online or through
The health history, medical pedigree, and/or medical genogram reports
generated by using GeneWeaver can be invaluable during stressful
emergencies when important information is easily forgotten, when sick
patients are too ill to remember, and when family members are too
overwhelmed or stressed to give accurate data. In addition, health
information gathered into GeneWeaver can allow the user to take a
proactive role in health care by following good preventive health care,
watching for early warning signs of illness with regular monitoring tests,
making informed life choices, and helping future generations take full
advantage of new medical discoveries.
Genes & Things, Inc. was established in 1999 by well-known professional
genealogists Norma Storrs Keating, RN, BSN, and Elizabeth Kelley Kerstens,
CGRS, CGL. Keating has 28 years of experience in genealogical research and
is the owner and CEO of Your Family Connection, in Yorba Linda, CA. Her
lecture presentation entitled Putting the Gene Back in Genealogy was

histories, genograms, genetics, The Human Genome Project, and inherited
traits. Kerstens has 23 years of experience in genealogical research and
public relations. She is owner and CEO of Ancestor Detective, LLC, in
Plymouth, MI. She is the creator of the software program Clooz®- an
electronic filing cabinet for genealogical records, the managing editor of
Ancestry.coms Genealogical Computing magazine, and a frequent contributor
to Ancestry magazine.
