Tuesday's Tip - NARA Video: Intro to Census Records

The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) is on YouTube with a variety of channels that highlight its extensive holdings and provide instructive videos on how to find and use various records and record collections. 

A new video of interest to beginner genealogists was recently added to the line-up. "Genealogy Introduction: Census Records at the National Archives" is presented by Constance Potter, an archivist at the National Archives in Washington, DC, specializing in federal records of interest to genealogists. She is an expert on the U.S. census records. In this YouTube video, Connie delivered a talk on the intricacies of the U.S. Federal Census records from 1790 to 1930 and how they can be used for genealogical research.

I learned about this video from my free subscription to Dick Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter (EOGN).
