The 1940 Census Buzz Gets Louder As We Count Down The Days To April 2

1940-Census-Badge13

Are You Ready For A Little Census Indexing? Game On! Week of March 19th. 

It’s like a huge team, racing down field to make the initial kickoff of the game…here we go Indexers! (yes, I am kind of excited!) First though, a little practice:

  • Completed a 1940 U.S. Census simulation batch before 30 March 2012
  • To complete a practice batch, just log in to the indexing software and click “Download Batch” and look for *SIMULATION* 1940 U. S. CENSUS.

I’m happy to say I’ve completed my practice batch, and I have to tell you it was so easy to do. It took me hardly any time at all to get it done and submitted.

Contest? Did Someone Say Contest?

Opt in at the Games and Prizes page to enter

There’s a weekly contest for everyone (ALL of my readers). Why? Because there are actual prizes being given away, but you win no matter what because you’re helping promote a most noble deed: the indexing of the census so that it will be free to search through the efforts of a host of volunteers as well as sponsors like Archives™, Family Search and FindMyPast.com.

Two qualified entrants will be able to win two $50 Visa gift cards; one chosen at random may win a $100 Visa gift card. Contests will be ongoing and the topic will change each week. Visit the 1940 Census Blog for more information.

Disclosure: As part of the 1940 U.S Census Ambassador program this blog post enters me into a drawing for a Kindle Fire.
