Handout for October 17th Meeting – 1950 Census

We had a great meeting on Monday, although a little confused with the change of venue. Amy Urman presented her program on the 1950 Census and there were lots of questions. It you didn’t get a copy of the handout at the meeting, below is an attachment.

Genealogy Club Meeting – October 17 at 1:00 pm

Just a reminder to club members, guests and prospective members, there will be a Sun City Vistoso Genealogy Club meeting tomorrow at the Catalina Vista building at 1:00 pm. The program for the meeting is the 1950 Census presented by Amy Urman. Please plan to arrive a little early. Walgreens in cooperation with Sun City Vistoso will be administering Flu Vaccines from 7:30 am until 1:00 pm, so you can “kill two birds” with one visit on Monday. Look forward to seeing all those sore arms and eager learners.
