MCGS General Meeting at 1:30PM
NJ State Census: 1855-1915
Think you’ve milked the censuses for everything you can? Think again. On Sunday, May 4, 2014, Michelle Chubenko will provide us with fresh insight into that most vital of all genealogy sources, the census, with her overview of the New Jersey State censuses.
Michelle will describe the evolution of the state census from 1855 through 1915 and also let us know what we can find in the agriculture, manufactures, mining and commerce censuses. Have you dipped into those?
Michelle, a former MCGS Education Committee chair and workshop lecturer, has 22 years of experience in tracking down families in New Jersey, Maryland, and southwest Virginia. She has 15 years of experience researching the Cherokee Nation and Oklahoma/Indian Territory. She currently leads the blog “Jersey Roots Genealogy” (http://jerseyrootsgenealogy.wordpress.com) and is a founder of the Family History Group of the Ukrainian Historical and Educational Center of New Jersey.
Michelle has presented genealogical lectures to audiences on a local, county, state and national level (FGS 2008/Philadelphia) and also via online chat sessions. An exciting experience for Michelle was the researching for the Brooke Shields' episode for NBC's show "Who Do You Think You Are?" That led to her appearance in the episode, which aired in April 2010.
She is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists (APG) and many local ethnic, genealogy and historical organizations, including her 2011 appointment to the Middlesex County Heritage & Cultural Commission.
