Welcome to our site!

The Hudson Genealogical Study Group, founded in 1986, is a chapter of the Ohio Genealogical Society.  While we are primarily concerned with the area in and near the City of Hudson in Summit County, Ohio, we also want to assist and encourage all who are researching their Family Tree to improve the accuracy and quality of the information in their tree. Membership in this chapter is open to all persons with genealogical interests. Our programs cover a wide range of genealogical programs from the beginning genealogist to the expert.

United States 1950 Census

Updated Sept 7
The 1950 U.S. Census Community Project has come to a close. Thanks to the contributions of more than 190,000 volunteers, the full census index will soon be searchable. Visit the 1950 Census page on FamilySearch to continue to watch the publication progress and to see which states are already available for searching.
Because of your efforts, millions of people will soon be able to find their ancestors in this fully reviewed collection of more than 151 million people.
It's amazing what we can accomplish together!
NOTE We now have blank 1950 US Census form available to download on our Genealogical Documents page.
