US CENSUS --NON-POPULATION SCHEDULES— Most of us are familiar with the population schedules of the US Census. But there is a wealth of information about our families in other schedules that were created in certain census years. This class identifies what those other schedules are (Agricultural, Mortality, DDD, etc.), what information can be found in them, and where they can be located today.Summers18 Apr 2017 10:00 AMLargo Library - Local History Room, 2nd Floor
