Genealogy (Love of the Hunt)

Hi everyone...Sorry I didnt get the blog out on Friday for your free question.   So, if you have a question, please post it and I will try and find the answer.   I am involved in indexing the 1940 census and last Thursday, I talked about it.   If you are interested in finding out how you can help with indexing the 1940 census coming out on April 2, 2012 go to familysearch.org/1940census.   Let me know how you are helping?

Its Thursday already!   Hello readers.  R u all happy with your genealogy research?   R u stuck and just cant find a relative?   Remember, tomorrow is FRee FRiday GEnealogy QUestion?   Today, I am going to talk about the 1940 Census coming out in April.   Are u getting excited about finding more information about your ancestors?  R any of you out there helping to index the census through Family Search.   No matter what experience you have, helping out would be great.   Go to www.familysearch.org/1940census.   I am getting excited about the realease.
 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.

Still continuing on with Google Searches!   IMAGINATION - Think like someone who would post a web page with the kind of information you are looking for.   Think like a genealogist for charts and reports.   Think like a librarian when searching for books.   You get my gist.   Good Luck   cg

Its Wednesday already!   Hope all of you had a great Valentine's Day.   Just a thought, that would be a good day to schedule some hunting for marriage licenses.   Did you take advantage of this day to do some hunting.  I volunteer in the HeritageRoom at a local library and a very nice gentleman was looking for a Mary Jane Mann death certificate.   I asked him to send me that question on Free Friday.   I have found Mary Jane Mann's death certificate.  Send me an email and I'll email you the information.   Everyone, dont forget that Fridays are Free Genealogy Question.  I will do my best to answer your genealogy question.   cg
