Every ten years in the United States, we are asked to fill out a Census questionnaire.  One thing that has always been included in the U.S. Census is the address.  Have you ever wondered what your address says about you?  What does it mean for millions of people today who do not have an address? The author of The Address Book illuminates the complex and sometimes hidden stories behind street names and their power to name, to hide, to decide who counts, who doesn’t—and why.  As the 2020 U.S. Census is being compiled and studied and the 1950 U.S. Census sheet soon becomes available for researchers and genealogists, join us for a discussion about what addresses can teach us. Click here to reserve a copy of The Address Book and join the discussion.
