*Extra* *Extra* photos and prizes

Ready for the 1940 census release in only…  11 days?!?

My brother-in-law and his wife showed up at Meri’s baby blessing dressed to the nines.  Couldn’t resist getting some shots of this beautiful couple.


We decided… the hats make it!  🙂

The 1940 census blog is having an indexing practice contest.  The prizes are (2) $50 Visa gift cards and one $100 Visa gift card – to be given to three random qualifying people that enter.  You could definitely buy a dapper hat with a card like that.  Here’s the info copied straight across (so I don’t mess up any details).  :):

First, visit the Games and Prizes page of the 1940 Blog to register for all project contests.  Then, follow the additional steps below to qualify for this week’s prizes!

Gear Up To Index Game (March 19-30)

  • To qualify for this week’s drawing, you must download the indexing software.
  • Complete a 1940 U.S. Census simulation batch  before 11:59pm MT March 30, 2012.
