DearREADERS,
Thanks for your enthusiastic response to the 1940 Census: HELP with the 5 million record day challenge. We did it. Here is the official word from FamilySearch.org:

Amazing! We passed the 5 million records goal in less than 16 hours and just kept going! Thank you to the 46,091 indexers and arbitrators who participated in this historic event.
Final Record Count:
  • 7,258,151 Indexed
  • 3,082,728 Arbitrated
  • 10,340,879 Total
If you participated, proudly share this graphic on your website or blog. Mr. Myrt did a number of batches, his first time at bat.

Happy family tree climbing!
