    Looking for elusive ancestors in Britain and Wales? Join us for a very special 2 hour genealogy event at the Steele Memorial Library in beautiful Elmira, NY! Genealogist Liz Pearson's last session in Elmira will cover the English and Welsh Census Records Pre-1841 and 1841-1911. Family structure, occupation, immigration, emigration, and place of birth are often contained in the UK government census. These important documents are a staple for family historians. We will examine how they were compiled, by whom, as well as accessing helpful guides to try and locate the apparent absentees and lists of missing census.

During the late 70's her professional life transplanted her to New York and Washington DC where she found many opportunities to share her English and Welsh expertise with Anglo Americans researching their roots.

Liz now volunteers and teaches for the Pinellas (FL) Genealogical Society as well as offering professional genealogy services in English and Welsh family history.
