As we complete our Census 2020 surveys, it’s important to know that there is so much more to the Census than just a simple count of population. It is a valuable history of our communities and families. This interactive session, led by Queens Memory Outreach Coordinator Lori Wallach, will explore the information we can find in Census records, maps, and historic photographs of Douglaston.
