 Did you know October is Family History Month? Several cities and states have designated this month as Family History Month , and the U.S. Senate  has adopted similar resolutions in the past. It is estimated that there are over 80 million people researching their family histories.

The U.S. National Archives and Records Administration  makes census records available to the public 72 years after the census is conducted.
