Join host Bernice Bennett and special guest Char McCargo Bah for a discussion on researching roomers and others  documented in the household.
When you are using the U.S. Census, you will see several large families.  In some cases, you might see extended families and roomers.  Hence, if you research everyone in the house, you might find answers to a lot of your questions.  Knowing "Whose In The House.," could even reveal pre civil war ancestors.
