I indexed for the 1940 Census but can’t remember how to get started. I would like to assist with the Freedmen’s Project.
The prompts listed didn’t work for me. What must I do?
I never met any of my grandparents. My parents have passed away. My dad would be 95 and my mom would be 93 this year. I don’t know much about my grandparents only that they grew up in slavery .. I would love to know about my family my mother Maiden name is Alice G. Mourning from NC and my dad’s name is Willie R Griggs from VA. if I can find out anything about my grandparents, I will forever be grateful.
MY grandfather name is Albert Dubois wanting to look up where he came from he was born in warren arkansas
Does the 1930 Census record with a birth year of 1922 and parents named Albert and Louise fit?
Hopefully you got my earlier e-mail. Try the link again or go to http://www.familysearch.org and select indexing projects.
I would love to learn how to index those records, i have indexed so far this year 32710 records for Family Search, but do not know how to do your records. If you can email me back and tell me i would appreciate it very much.
Thanks for all your work! See the US Freedmen Bureau projects to help with indexing. More information is available on http://www.DiscoverFreedmen.org.
