Title: White Dwarfs from the SDSS as Tracers of the Ages amd Evolution of Populations in the Galaxy

Abstract: Among its numerous products, the Sloan Digital Sky Survey has tripled the number of spectroscopically-identified white dwarfs, found many unusual examples, and contributed order of magnitude increases in the samples suitable for determining the ages and star formation histories of the Galactic disk and halo. I present initial results from the analysis of these samples.
