Wordless Wednesday: Egbert Landon

My 3xgreat-grandfather Egbert Benson S. Landon (1823-1886), daguerreotype, date unknown (guess is 1850ish).

1940 Census Halfway Point

I'm so happy that I've been able to help get the 1940 census halfway indexed a month ahead of schedule, albeit at a dramatically reduced personal rate compared to April although I've been picking up speed again. Every bit helps though, and if you're not already signed up to index you can still give it a try.

I loved being able to log in and see my achievement badges swag today for all the states I've helped to index, although I think I need to add some more states so Tennessee doesn't think too highly of itself just because a second row had to be started for my collection. Bigger image than Alaska and California? I don't think so! :D
