  • My office is a giant mess because of all the photography stuff I pulled out for the workshop. Can't it just put itself away? #
  • I'm going through every person on my 1940 Census list to identify exact addresses through City Directories and WWII draft records. #
  • Out of 674 pages in a city directory, I just randomly chose the exact page the person I was looking for was listed on. #bizarreluck #
  • States I'm ready to search in the 1940 Census: Arkansas, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Missouri #
  • Happy birthday to our kitties! Cheetoe is 11 and Tumbleweed is 9 today. They are both senior citizen kitties now. #
  • Andrew just asked me what the song was on TV. Lucky for him, after deep thought he identified it as "Jessica" by The Allman Brothers. #
  • Nine hours and counting. 1940 Census, I'm ready for you! #
  • Twenty minutes and counting. I'm so excited! #
  • Wow! is flying at posting the new 1940 Census images. About half of Indiana is already up there! #
  • Even the live Webcast for the NARA launch is having trouble.. "The form doesn't work. Uh-oh!" #
  • The site is responding perfectly fine, but the submission form is broken. #
  • We're 20 minutes in, and the NARA search form still doesn't work. #
  • Yay Megan!!! Bring those soldiers home! #
  • "ERROR: The request could not be satisfied. Generated Mon, 02 Apr 2012 13:37:29 GMT by cloudfront (CloudFront)" #boo #
  • The issues with the launch of the 1940 Census were expected, although still disappointing. #
  • I made it past the search screen! Now if only I could view an image… #
  • I see my first 1940 Census image! Saginaw, ED 73-43. Walter Dreffs, I'm hunting you down! #
  • I downloaded the entire ED 73-43 set of images and searched them. I found some Stroiks, but not Dreffs. Moving on to 73-48! #
  • Yay for Ancestry who just posted the Porter County, Indiana census images! #

  • My third find, g-grandparents George & Emma Fitzgerald, Indiana, Porter County, Valparaiso, ED 64-2, Sheet 2A, Line 2. Living with son Guy. #
  • So far I'm very impressed with Ancestry. The images are loading quickly and they are crisp. I'm extremely lucky they chose Indiana first! #
