Great Stories from the 1940 Census

I was able to work on the 1940 census with my Mom.  She turns 80 this coming Jan.  We not only found Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles and cousins.  We found the doctor that delivered my and the doctor that delivered my father 81 years ago.  My father was the first C-section done in Murphysboro, Ill.  One doctor read the instructions from a book while the other preformed the operation.

Just going through the 1940 Census jogged my parents memories and the stories just kept coming.  What a great way to spend some quality time with my parents.
