Professional genealogist Stephen Morse will present Preparing for the 1950 Census, a free virtual lecture at the Santa Barbara County Genealogical Society’s monthly meeting on Saturday, February 19. The meeting will be held via Zoom video conferencing.

When the 1950 census is released in April 2022, it will not have a name index, so finding people in the census will involve searching by location. Even when a name index is available, there will still be plenty of reasons to do location searches.
The census is organized by enumeration districts (EDs), so the location must be converted to an ED before the census is accessible. The talk will introduce the different tools that Morse has developed on its One Step website and show the circumstances in which each can be used to conduct census research.
Morse is the creator of the One-Step website, for which he received the Lifetime Achievement Award and Outstanding Contribution Award from the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies, the National Genealogical Society Merit Award, the excellence from the Association of Professional Genealogists, and two honors from Polish genealogical societies.
Morse is also an IT professional with a doctorate in electrical engineering. He has held various research, development and teaching positions, authored technical articles, written textbooks and holds four patents. He is best known as the architect of the Intel 8086 processor (ancestor of today’s Pentium processor), which sparked the PC revolution some 40 years ago.
