Worried that you might make a mistake? Don’t be. Checks and balances are at work behind the scenes. First, each record is indexed by at least 2 indexers. Then, once the indexed records are submitted, they are compared by computer. Any records with discrepancies are submitted for arbitration. Arbitrators are actual living, breathing people who have a lot of experience with indexing. They review the original image side-by-side with both indexing submissions and make a determination on which one is correct.
Still unsure? There are lots of resources to help!
So now that I’ve basically crushed every excuse you had, what are you waiting for? Go to the 1940 U.S. Census Community Project and sign up today! You could be a winner!
As part of the1940census.com ambassador program, this blog post enters me into a drawing for an Amazon Kindle Fire.
