Motivation Monday: 1940 Census
There are only 35 days until the 1940 US Census will be released on April 2, 2012. This Census will be released without a index, but with our help, we can have it indexed in no time. The 1940 US Census Community Project is looking for individuals or groups to volunteer and help create this index. The indexing software can be downloaded here.
I have already downloaded and indexed some records; and it was very simple and fast. I worked on the World War 2 Draft Cards for Arkansas, and found it very fun and rewarding. Right now, you can practice on Indexing for the 1940 Census by downloading a practice batch.
