Most-wired Generation Gorges on 1940 Census Data




How’s that for a headline! Though in its source newspaper, Bloomberg News, it is “Most–Wired Generation meets greatest Generation in Census Frenzy,” http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-04-12/most-wired-generation-meets-greatest-generation-in-census-frenzy.html

I have been very impressed with how much press coverage the release of the 1940 census has been receiving in the News and Observer (Raleigh, NC).

I cannot think of a genealogical topic that has generated as much press as this has!  Are you also finding expanded coverage in your local newspaper?
