1940 Census Indexing Project for Santa Barbara County
As soon as the images are ready for Santa Barbara County, members and others will be able to join our project the Society has adopted for indexing all 70,555 residents of Santa Barbara County.
But first, those who have not indexed before using the FamilySearch.org indexing program software are encouraged to download the indexing program at Getting Started Try indexing some other projects so you will become familiar with the process. It is really quite easy. One batch to index will consist of around 40 lines (one census sheet). This can be done at your convenience at home any time of the day or night in your jammies. Indexing can be done at the Sahyun Library. You can index as many batches as you wish—one or many, it all helps.
Our Society goal will be to finish before other counties and other societies. We may have local Society contests for the fastest indexer or the indexer who indexes the most batches or names.
Instruction for those who need it will be available the last week in March at the Sahyun Library. Contact Dorothy Oksner, the administrator for the Society project, with your enthusiasm and support.
