I really learned a lot last year while I volunteered transcribed the 1940’s US Census. It was very fun and educational at the same time.

Right now this month’s value pack at Shop Family Tree is  the Census Research Value pack. This pack will help you find websites with census records and dates. What to expect when using the 1940 census and how to access online census records for free. How to use the major online census collections at Ancestry.com, HeritageQuest Online and other sites. How the different sites’ records and indexes compare to each other. Teach you search strategies for finding elusive ancestors and why you may not be able to find a certain census record.  These tips for becoming a smarter and more efficient census searcher will help in your research.

Here is a great video from Youtube on the 1940’s US Census from National Archives.
