Wow, states are loading quickly, with Washington, DC, and Nevada now complete. My home state of Indiana has 55 counties represented (of 92), and I’ve already identified who was living in my old house and quickly found my brother-in-law’s family in Jasper County. Whoohoo! We are off and running.
I think it’s only appropriate that on a day that’s like Christmas for family historians, we post the census image showing radio personality and the famous author of A Christmas Story, Jean Shepherd with his family in Hammond, Indiana.
