Check “The Line” on the 1940 Census

I remember my mother and friend gossiping about “the line” which referred to the supplemental questions that appeared twice on each 1940 census page. “Did you know that so-and-so was ‘on the line’ when the enumerator arrived?”  To my surprise, it was my mother who was “on the line.”  The info at the bottom of the page didn’t add much to what I knew, but if one of your family members is “on the line” be sure to check the bottom of the page.
