A couple of weeks ago an author from Morgan came into the bookstore.  She asked whether we would interested in stocking her book.  We have a good selection of science fiction and fantasy in the bookstore and I always like to support local authors so I told her we would be happy to.  I will confess that I am a lover of science fiction/fantasy and that genre is one of the best stocked in the store.  I was also looking  for a good book to read over the holidays so I took a copy home to read.

Morgan Valley Crafts hosted a grand opening last weekend welcoming the public to its creative shop, located right here in Morgan.  Refreshments were served which only diverted attention for a moment from the crafts which fared to be a bigger temptation for the great turnout of shoppers.

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.

I know I have written a few times about the 1940 census, but here I go again.  We are only a little over a month from the release of the census.  If you have not signed up to index I encourage you to do so.
