Help index the 1940 census so it'll be searchable by name. Do a batch (one page) in a half hour (or less) and you're done...unless you want to pitch in and do some more -- I've done a bunch already. Genealogists now and forever will love you for it! https://www.familysearch.org/volunteer/indexing Bottlecap, Genealogy Society, Genealogy Gem, 1940 Census, Genealogy Search, Families History, Community Projects, Families Trees, Census Records
