Easy No-Sew Barbarian Shoes - Net-top Shoes
NOTE: Can make with orthotics inside!

* PRESS knife through leather - don't pull.
* Be sure to wear heavy socks or felted wool for cushioning due to mesh and ties.
* Probably need to ADJUST, making the non-mesh sides higher to allow for the orthotic.
* Look up Roman brogued shoe for ideas on decorative variations on slits?

Archaeological Sewing IMPORTANT! LINEN SEAMS
Linen RAVELS & is laundered often: MUST turn cut edges under when finishing!

SELVEDGES
Joining two single selvedge edges place the two edges right sides together, overcast, and flatten.

SEE PAGE FOR VARIATIONS WITH LININGS

LONG STRAIGHT SEAMS: USE FLAT-FELLED.
-1- Joining two single cut edges (flat felled seam) place Right-Sides-Together, with one edge extending slightly and sew with a running stitch.
-2- Fold the extended edge over the other cut edge, flatten, and sew to the main fabric with an overcast stitch.

HEMS: Double-folded & hem stitched

NECK & OTHER NON-EDGE SEAMS:
-1- All non-edge seams (as well as the neck edge) are sewn right sides together
-2- and then a straight-grain tape, with the edges folded under, is placed over the opened seam and hem-stitched at each edge.

-4- then folded under and hem-stitched on the inside.

Census Records | National Archives
Census records can provide the building blocks of your research.  The first Federal Population Census was taken in 1790, and has been taken every ten years since. Because of a 72-year restriction on access to the Census, the most recent year available is 1940.  The 1950 Census will be released in 2022.  

The National Archives has the census schedules on microfilm available from 1790 to 1940, and most have now been digitized by our digitization partners.  Family researchers generally find it most helpful to begin with the most current census and work backwards as a strategy for locating people in earlier generations.
