I stumbled upon this YouTube video this morning. I must say that the thought of the 1940 US Census warms my heart! I too would love to hold up a picture of a relative and say, "He's in it!"
If you would like to discover "who's in it?" please consider volunteering to help index the 1940 US Census! Head on over to familysearch.org/1940census to sign up! Many indexers means faster access to those records of the "Greatest Generation!" Speaking of the "Greatest Generation," click here to see an enlightening little tidbit from the 1940's.

By the way, for those of you who are curious or have never heard of the Crunchies Awards, go see their homepage. My brain just swims at the thought of how technology is changing the world!
If you love the tech aspect of genealogy as much as I do, you have to become a fan of Tech Tips from FamilySearch. Assorted contributors write about all manner of technologies that are particularly useful for the genealogist/family historian in all of us!
