participating society or an individual transcriber (indexer), go to
http://the1940census.com/. Participating projects/societies can add one
of the Society badges displayed at
https://the1940census.com/society/society-badges-3/ on their sites, as

If you have any problems, please let either Linda Lewis
(webmaster(a)cottonhills.com) or I (usgenwebnc(a)windstream.net) know so we

when it is released next week - please help make that happen!
