To paraphrase some artist...
"It will be finished when it is done".
Btw- Ancestry members *CAN'T* 'do the work' as they are not using volunteers to index the 1940 census.
You might find the following of help.
A new mailing list for the discussion of all things related to the 1940 US census; transcribing, understanding abbreviations used, how to find someone, etc. This is a "how to do it or find it yourself help list".
The name of the list is USCENSUS1940
as usual, send subscribe to:USCENSUS1940-Lfirstname.lastname@example.orgUSCENSUS1940-Demail@example.com
post messages to:USCENSUS1940@rootsweb.com
List info page:http://lists.rootsweb.ancestry.com/index/other/Census-US/USC
You have two choices when it comes to the index on Ancestry:
1). Wait patiently
2). Wait impatiently
The choice is yours.
