The 1940 U.S. Census release is making the big time. The Associated Press is carrying the following story:
If you haven't done so already, there's no time like the present to sign up as a volunteer to index the 1940 U.S. Census. The more people indexing, the sooner we'll all be able to see the results. To see the digitized, but unindexed, records, on April 2, 2012 starting at 9:00 A.M. (Eastern Time Zone) go to the National Archives and Records Administration 1940 Census webpage. In the meantime, one can watch the videos they've provided.
