Here comes the 1940 Census!

The 1940 Census was featured at the S.B. Genealogical Society monthly meeting, Saturday January 28. 

Joel Weintraub is an emeritus biology professor at California State University, Fullerton, and has won awards for his science teaching. He became interested in genealogy about 12 years ago, and volunteered for nine years at the National Archives and Records Administration in southern California. Joel started transcribing streets within census districts in 2001 to help researchers search the 1930 U.S. Census and has, along with David Kehs and Stephen Morse produced a number of online census searching utilities for both the federal and the New York State censuses on the Morse One Step Website. Joel has been working on finder aids for the 1940 census since 2005.

Joel presented 2 talks, the first explaining what we can expect to learn from the 1940 census and the second on how to use  One Step process.

Join SBCGS members on April 2, 2012 at the Sahyun to be the first to view the release of the 1940 census.
