Use Your Imagination And Put Your Memories On Canvas

Forget the tired old tie and give a memory!

Father’s Day is just 19 days away (June 17th) and this is also the traditional month for weddings, which are sometimes preceded by showers, so June is a perfect gift giving month don’t you think?

Easy Canvas Prints always has great offers and this one is pretty awesome if you ask me. How about a gift where you Get 25% Off Your Custom Canvas Prints + Free Shipping for each dad, or one for Dad and one for the wedding couple? (Hint) Free shipping is ALWAYS great perk!

If you don’t have someone in those categories, you might want to punch up someones decor with prints on canvas of those neat buildings your camera nabbed while you were on vacation. What about your own decor? The main idea here is, if you have a great photo you’ve taken, why not share it with the world?

Here are some more ideas for subjects:

Pets, heirlooms, cars, gardens, military service photos, birds, awards, trophy fish, family trees.

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

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.

 

The 1940 Census Is Coming. Please Help Spread The Word!

   Something To Stimulate Your Censuses


I’ve been online doing genealogy for so long, I think I remember when they released the 1920 census! (You didn’t seriously think I was going to say I remember the first census in 1790 did you? 😉 ) Now, we’ve gone past the 1930 census and the excitement is mounting as we get to see the 1940 census. Well, as soon as it gets completely indexed.*

Genealogy Blogs Help Spread The Word

You might have already seen a few articles about the 1940 census on blogs like Geneabloggers, Heritage Happens, and Olive Tree Genealogy , just to name a few. If you want to find more participating blogs just do a search in Google for ‘1940 Census Ambassador’ (without quotes).

What I’ll be looking for in the 1940 census:

You know the old saying in genealogy…”start with yourself”. Well, I won’t be in the 1940 census because I was born in 1950, but I know my parents and grandparents will be for sure.  And, what about those ancestors who died after 1930 but before 1940? Mysteries will be solved!  Being able to look in the latest census release will document even more of our families. But we need to be able to find them in an index.

I want to volunteer to index the 1940 census!

*That’s where YOU come in. Volunteers around the world are now joining Archives.com, FamilySearch.org, FindMyPast.com and other project organizers and volunteers to transcribe these priceless census records. For more detailed information, please read Matt Wright’s excellent article Make History: Join the 1940 U.S. Census that explains everything you need to know.

Just want to get started? Go to 1940 Census right now! And, thank you for volunteering!
