1940 US Census Indexing - Personal Update

1940 US Census Indexing - Personal Update

I was very pleased to see that Iowa images were now being indexed via FamilySearch and the the related Community Project we have all been promoting.

So, I went and indexed a few batches of Iowa images - in a county where some of my ancestors lived many years ago - Adair County. It was fun, felt good, and gave me an excuse to say:

If you haven't indexed any 1940 US Census images, yet, it is still not too late. Just go to the link, above, and Get Started, as it says (or, click on the logo, below!). More hands make the work go faster - for the benefit of everyone!

Families are Forever!  ;-)


  1. I have done one batch, I'm trying to get myself on a schedule to do at least one a week. I found a helpful group on facebook of other indexers who post questions and help each other figure out issues while they are indexing. I would have never indexed had it not been for a lady who gave a presentation to our genealogy society about how it was "giving back" to the community. I really like that idea.

  2. Good for you! I really appreciate the great comment. Others will benefit as well. ;-)
