R EVIEW AND INTRODUCTION

SOME COMPILED SOURCES
CENSUSES
HANDS-ON EXERCISES
ASSIGNMENT
  1. Find a GEDCOM from the Internet or FHC or elsewhere with some of your ancestors.  Import it into a new database (not your master database) and examine it and clean it up before you import the parts you want into your master database.
  2. Pick an ancestor and "run" him or her through each of the US Censuses -- means finding their family in each census to see where they lived, ages of children, occupation, etc. -- Note:  the ages indicated in the censuses won't be consistent since they were frequently just estimated by someone in the household.
