Happy 1 Month Birthday to the 1940 US Census!

It's your America! Help the ten-year roll call--1940 census, U.S.A.One month ago today the 1940 US Census went live.  Wow, what a wild ride it has been!  What an amazing job everyone is doing with the 1940 US Census Community Project as well!

I hope many of you have been enjoying the images, indexing, arbitrating, learning, researching, and are hungry for more.  Just as a reminder, the 1940 US Census Project is still going strong.  New indexers are still signing up and there is a lot to do.  The more the merrier!  If you have been indexing, remember there is a critical need for arbitrators.  The indexes won’t be out until they are all arbitrated. 

Not sure what indexing and arbitrating are?  Not a problem.  Check out a few of the links below to help get you started, or to brush up on those skills.  I would go first to the Resources Page at the community project website.  Not sure what to look at?  Here are a few of my favorite ones:

Are you all jazzed up and ready to go strong?  Great!  Now don't forget that there are weekly prizes over at the community site.
