Happy Halloween! Finally got power restored earlier this evening! Pejepscot Genealogical Society (PGS) will hold its next monthly meeting in the Morrell Meeting Rm of the Curtis Memorial Library in Brunswick on Sunday, November 12, 2017 at 2 pm. PGS Member Dr. Carol P. McCoy will be speaking on “Finding Someone who Eluded Census Records”. Census records are a cornerstone of genealogical research. The census can assist researchers in placing people in a specific location, in identifying family members neighbors and associates, in determining occupations and a host of other details. What if you can’t find your person in the census? Did they elude the census taker or are they just eluding you? This lecture will help you learn a flexible approach for finding people in census records and in census substitute records so you can place them in a location for a specific time period.
This organization shall be known as the Pejepscot Genealogical Society.
The purposes of the Society are to collect, exchange and preserve written and oral genealogical records and related historical information and to encourage and assist the study of genealogy and family history.
