Welcome to the CCCGS blog.

The purpose of this blog is to promote the Contra Costa County Genealogical Society by announcing upcoming events and reporting on past events. In doing so, I hope it will encourage all who are interested to attend any of our events and meetings, and share in our enthusiasm of genealogical research.

Follow Friday - U.S. Census Pathfinder

   Michael Hait, of Hait Family Research Services, and author of the blog, Planting the Seeds, has written a new blog post called "U.S. Census Pathfinder Is Now Available."  This is a wonderful resource for learning as much as you can on any census.  Here is a shot of the first page:

First page of US Census Pathfinder

This wonderful resource contains 23 pages full of hyperlinks to the direct websites.  This gives you a complete reference to everything you would like to know about the United States census: enumerator instructions, NARA census catalog, FHL microfilm list, blank census forms, among many other sources.

The best part of this resource is it is free!  It opens as a pdf in your browser and you can then save it to your computer so view at any time.  This can be a valuable resource for your genealogical research.
