1940 U.S. Census Webinars

RootsMagic was pleased to sponsor a full-week of webinar sessions (April 2-6, 2012) dedicated to the 1940 US Census and hosted by DearMYRTLE.

Since the 1940 US Census images had been released only 12 hours prior to the first webinar session, we were learning and sharing together. The format for the webinars is "partial open mic" to discuss "on the fly" the experiences we're had with the newly released 1940 US Federal Census images. We were joined by Jim Ericson from FamilySearch and Amy Johnson Crow from Archives.com with tips, tricks and answers to your 1940 census questions.
