Lake County Genealogical Society plans program on exploring the 1950 federal Census

LAKEPORT, Calif. — Join your friends and members of the Lake County Genealogical Society on Saturday, April 23, to further explore the 1950 census release.

The event will begin at 2 p.m. in the Children’s Room at the Lakeport Library, 1425 N. High St., Lakeport.

This is the first census release that used artificial intelligence to create a searchable name index immediately upon release.

Join them to learn tips and tricks on finding your people, and updating information about your family.

Why the 72 year wait for the 1950 Census? That will be covered too.

The Lake County Genealogical Society will help you learn more about your family history — the stories, the people — using the Census and a variety of resources to add branches to your family's tree.

Future classes will cover writing your family's stories. All classes are free to the public.

The Lake County Genealogical Society hosts “Life in the Past Lane” on the second and fourth Saturdays at 2 p.m. at the Lakeport Library, with an informal genealogy lab meets every Tuesday at 1 p.m.
