I have permission from Alex to pass this on. Don't we wish our
ancestors had done the same.
Passing this along from the Southern Trails list --
The year 2000 is a Census Year. Most of the census will be taken by
mail, so after you have filled out your census form why not make a
copy of it and file with your important papers. Then your family will
not have to wait 70 years to learn about you.
