Many genealogists remember the amount of excitement in April, 2012 around the release of the 1940 US Census. Following the “72 Year Rule” for records at the National Archives, the results of the 1950 US Census will be made public on Friday, April 1, 2022

Participants will get up to speed on the history of the 1950 Census, why the 1950 US Census form is radically different than previous forms, and how the data will be accessed.  In addition, we’ll cover what you can do NOW to prepare for the release of the 1950 US Census and how you can always get the latest information related to the release of the 1950 US Census data.
