CVGA will have a virtual meeting this Saturday, February 12, at 10 am. I will send out an email on Friday evening with the Zoom information. Our topic will be the 1950 census which will be released on April 1, 2022.
The National Archives has released information about the 1950 census. Check it out at this website https://www.archives.gov/news/articles/1950-census-access
Just a reminder that RootsTech is a virtual online event and is FREE. The speakers and the seminars are wonderful. You can access the site 24 hours a day. To participate in all that is being offered, you do need to register which means you will have to establish an account at FamilySearch. It is easy. You provide a user name and password and then register. Here is the website: https://www.familysearch.org/rootstech/next/registration/
Happy New Year!
Due to continuing power and internet outages caused by the snowstorm earlier this week, there will NOT be a virtual or in-person meeting for the Central Virginia Genealogical Association on Saturday, January 8, 2022.
