-- Did you sign up for indexing at www.the1940Census.com?
-- Have you been notified that your state is available for indexing yet?
-- Quick tips on Indexing
-- What's same house vs same place?
-- Sharing views
-- Arbitration issues

  1. Too bad there is no comments field while you are indexing the records, to let arbitrators know that you just might know something about the spellings, locations, etc. So often I am certain that the arbitrator is going to get it wrong when I know I have it right. Either that, or a way to give feedback to the arbitrator for their corrections.
