The Greatest Generation

I have loved indexing census, WWI draft cards, death and birth certificate for several years.
 At anyone who wants to participate can join in.
In just a few days the 1940 Census will be available to see, and with lots of help it can be available to all via the internet.
If you would like to participate in this EVENT join in! You can go to www. or to  I CAN HARDLY WAIT!

""The 1940 U.S. Federal Census is the largest, most comprehensive, and most recent record set available that records the names of those who were living in the United States at the time the census was taken.
132 million people were living in the 48 Continental United States in 1940."

"Tens of millions of people living in the United States in 1940 are still living today, making this a record set that connects people with recent family records.
Many of these individuals are part of what has been called the greatest generation."
These are people who:
  • Survived the Great Depression
  • Fought in the Second World War
  • Innovated technology (TV, Microwave)
  • Sacrificed in the name of freedom
  • Practiced thrift and compassion
  • Understood hard work and industry
"The people in the 1940 census deserve to have their records preserved and made available online.""
