Navigating through the 1940 Census Fog

There has been so much hype about the 1940 census all over the net. It's difficult to keep up with what is going on with the 1940 U.S. Census Community Project and to get good information on how to use the census. There is one tool that is very helpful and informative, and that is the 1940 Blog.

The 1940 Blog has fun and informative articles on how our culture changed in the 1940s because of rationing and women joining the work force in droves like "The Greatest Generation" and articles on finding Famous People in the 1940s with details on how they were found...techniques that can be used in your own research. There are even weekly contests where you can win prizes like an Amazon Kindle Fire!

Visit the 1940 Blog, leave a comment on your favorite posts, and subscribe to the RSS feeds to receive new posts in your Reader. There is something there for everyone!

Thanks for dropping by.
