NGS 2012 - The 1940 Census Indexing Didn't Stop

One of the most popular booths at NGS seemed to be the 1940 U. S. Census Indexing booth. Anyone who stopped by and indexed two batches received a T-shirt. Several times I saw a line of people waiting their turn. Even on Saturday afternoon, less than two hours before the exhibit hall closed, every seat was filled.

If you haven't volunteered for indexing, it's not too late. Check out the 1940 U. S. Census Community Project for all the details.


  1. OK, that is super cool, AND, a t-shirt! WIN WIN!

  2. Linda,
    It was so great meeting you in person! I see you haven't had much "down" time.
