I keep seeing all the big countdowns to the 1940 census. I read of people taking days off from work, throwing parties and such, and I just shake my head. REALLY?
The big countdown to the 1940 census. I know its a major deal, it will be the first census that my parents appeared as children with their parents - something I am looking forward to seeing. But honestly I still have people I can not find on the 1930, the marriage project, scanning, and many other smaller projects I am working on. I guess I just don't get the hoopla. Its not like its going to get posted and taken down three hours later or something.
I guess I figure I'll get around to it sooner or later. I remember when the 1930 was released, all the hype and such. I couldn't wait to get the 1930 on my families. A few of them are still not found on the 1930, I figure they joined a witness protection program or something?
So are you one of those people awaiting the arrival like new parents anticipating a birth? Will you be anxiously pacing in front of your computer the morning of April 2nd? Will you be poised at your computer, hand on your mouse ready to click the minute 9 am arrives?
If you answered yes to any of the three questions, leave me a comment, I'd love to hear your thoughts....
