Morgan County offices were closed Friday when a federal judge ruled the state’s ban on same-sex marriage had been overturned. But Morgan County Attorney Jann Farris was watching the news with the rest of the state.

Morgan County offices were closed Friday when U.S. District Court Judge Robert J. Shelby ruled that the 2004 Utah State Constitutional amendment defining marriage as only a legal union between a man and a woman was unconstitutional. He ruled that the amendment violates due process and equal protection under the fourteenth amendment. Salt Lake County immediately began issuing licenses.

Utah will be available to search by name within the next day or two in the 1940 census at FamilySearch.org.  The total states published to search by name as of the present time are Delaware, Virginia, Colorado, Kansas, Oregon, New Hampshire, Utah, Florida, and Wyoming.  An additional seven states are close to release.  They are Alaska, Arizona, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Vermont and Hawaii.  Several other states are completing quickly.  The project is nearly 50 percent complete.

FamilySearch has quietly published free access to all of the United States Census, just as the 1940 project gets seriously underway.  More than a year ago FamilySearch announced a joint project with Ancestry.com to improve the currently published censuses.  Ancestry provided their index to the censuses and volunteers at FamilySearch did a second index of all the names.  The results were then arbitrated to create a better quality index.  FamilySearch created a new set of higher quality digital images from the original microfilm for many of  the years as well.

Well, it’s finally here.  On April 2, the United States National Archive released the images of the 1940 census.  Almost immediately the National Archive site was virtually down, it was so slow.  Over the past week the site performance has steadily improved, but it continues to run a little slow.  What is not as well known is that the images are also available on FamilySearch.org/1940census and on Ancestry.com .  Both of these sites are making the images available for free.  If you know where your ancestor lived, you can now find the image in the census.  If you don’t know where they lived you can go to FindMyPast.com who has offered to find your ancestor for you in the 1940 census.  Images will also shortly be available on FindMyPast.com.

Earl was born in SE Nebraska on a farm.  Literally.  They didn’t have a telephone, so his Dad had to hitch up a team of horses to make contact with anyone.
