I am able to grab a few minutes today while both of my kids are taking a nap. This hasn’t happened in months, I am giddy with excitement for a little bit of surprise genealogy time!
Tomorrow night is the monthly meeting for my local genealogy society, Marin County Genealogical Society. I am really excited because Steve Morse is coming to our meeting to present “Getting Ready for the 1940 Census: Searching Without a Name Index.” I am really looking forward to this. I have been to two Steve Morse presentations before. He is a great presenter and I can’t wait to learn more about his One-Step web pages for the 1940 census.
I am going to spend my “surprise genealogy” time this afternoon making a list of the ancestors who were alive in 1940. If the kids sleep long enough, I will try to pin down locations for each person too.
