Well we had a good turn out for the 1940 Census, Are you Ready Lecture. One thing that surprised me was that not many folks raised their hands when I asked if they were all up to date on the 1930 census. I guess since I go to the census first and then the books, it helps me put those people in a time and place, I thought everyone else did that too.
Here are some links from my handout with comments. You can copy and paste into your browser window.
