Are you Indexing the 1940 Census?

The 1940 census is finally here! I hope all of my readers have had the opportunity to locate someone in the census. In order to make it easier for everyone to find their ancestors we need to participate in the 1940 US Census Community Project by indexing. This week's prize for indexing is an Amazon Kindle Fire. Here's what you need to do to be entered into the drawing for one.

  1. If you haven't already, sign up for 1940 Census Project contests on the Games and Prizes page.
  2. Then go into the indexing software and start indexing. Not set up to index yet? Just go to The 1940 Census website to get started.
  3. All the details are on this week's Weekly Contest post at the main blog.
Join the project and index a batch of the 1940 census. We all will benefit. Remember, if everyone does a little, no one has to do a lot.

As part of ambassador program this blog post enters me into a drawing for a Yeti Microphone and two $50 Amazon gift cards.
