CNYGS General Membership Meeting
A Zoom meeting to catch up our membership on what’s going on at CNYGS. This will be just a membership meeting, no program. Many of the board members will be in attendance and we hope to have a good discussion. The board will catch everyone up on what has been going on and share some future plans.
We will also discuss the upcoming Ahnentafel project for our 60th anniversary – to be published in the December issue of Tree Talks. We will also set some time aside for member sharing.
Please register for the event by emailing programs@cnygs.org

“Read The Instructions: Details in The U.S. Census You May Be Missing”
A census record can give a "snapshot" of a family on a particular day. However, we need to search in the Federal, State, Veteran, Agricultural, School, Police and Mortality Censuses. Do you take the time to read the column headings, the instructions given to the enumerator on what to enter on the form or the abbreviation codes? We will review the directions that can assist your understanding of the answers.
Registration required. Send email to programs@cnygs.org

Amanda Perrine, MLS
“1950 Census Prep”
The 1950 census release is getting closer! When released in April of 2022 it will not be indexed, so now is the time to prep to find yourself, parents, and/or grandparents listed. Amanda will offer research and organizational tips, a look at Steve Morse's website, practicing your indexing skills so that you can assist with the release, and more.
Registration required. Send email to programs@cnygs.org
