Family history researchers rely heavily on census records from 1790 to 1940. However, most of the 1890 United States federal census is not available due to a devastating fire in 1921. What happened, what survived, and what can be done to fill in the 1890-1900 gap? Learn about other resources that can provide information for this period.
Lisa Schumacher began working on her family history 30 years ago with an interest in computer programs for genealogical research. She is a professional genealogist and lecturer, member of the Daughters of the American Revolution, the Mayflower Society, and board member of South Bay Cities Genealogical Society. The society's version of "Who Do You Think You Are?" for the 2012 Torrance Centennial Celebration was her most rewarding and memorable accomplishment as a genealogist.
