#1940Census webinars archived at

Heard about those neat forms Joel Weintraub shared during last night's 1940 Census Images & Indexing Update webinar? I've never seen those 1940 census enumerator instruction booklet pages and forms, but Joel's presentation helped us understand how the census was conducted. Would that all enumerators had followed those instructions. You can catch last night's webinar in the archive located at:

We've got two more webinar sessions to go -- tonight and tomorrow night. Ol' Myrt here thinks you will agree some mighty interest discussions have come out of these sessions.

The 1940 Census webinar sessions are being held every night this week (April 2-6, 2012), and you may attend any or all of the sessions with your single registration. Register once to receive log-in info and reminders for all remaining nights. You can sign up at

Ol' Myrt here will start the pre-webinar warm-up at 5:45pm Pacific US time, and the webinar itself begins at 6pm. Arrive early to be assured of a seat. Special thanks to for providing the larger webinar "room".

Happy family tree climbing!
