Re: 1940 Census - 26 States Indexed Familysearch

Georgia Adams.... we will hook you up. I am also finding it fascinating, looking at who and what race lived in what towns. So many families had 6 plus children. And the names the census takers tried to spell for people are terrible. When I come to a town that have ALL negroe residents, I yell for joy. And this is in South Carolina 1935-1940. Some of them I can't figure out what the names of the person could be. Many of them the handwriting is so bad, I simply put the initial of the name. I remember when I was looking for my peeps and some names I now know to be something else was incorrectly transcribed, but I see why. So I type exactly what I see. The arbitrater, another indexer or the future researcher can change it. 8)
