Skidompha Library will host a special one-hour program about U.S. special census nonpopulation schedules. This program will take place in Skidompha’s Porter Hall on Wednesday, May 22 from 3:30-4:30 p.m. Skidompha is located at 184 Main St., Damariscotta.
This engaging workshop will help one flesh out the story of one’s ancestors’ lives by gleaning information from other census data collected in some decades – agricultural, manufacturing/industrial, enumerating people who were deaf/mute, mortality, plus the 1880 census of the dependent, homeless children, blind, insane, indigent, and others.
The workshop will be led by Skidompha’s staff genealogist, Kathleen Maclachlan. It is free and open to the public.
