Pushing Back the Clock: Finding Pre-1850 Census Substitutes

For many of us, the most interesting pasts of our family tree are the distant branches of people form long ago. Unfortunately, common sources like census or church records become more sparse as we go back in time. The presentation will focus on where and how to find earlier documents. Ed is a big believer in going back to the source, rather than copying the trees of others. He will discuss how to find early church records, older printed documents with a focus on overseas ancestors. Ed Storey grew up in Rochester, NY where he worked for General Motors for 40 years. With his wife Nancy, he has lived in El Paso and Beijing before choosing Colorado Springs. Ed writes article for magazines such as Internet Genealogy and Your Genealogy Today. His ancestral searches are primarily in England, India and Germany, as well as North Carolina
