The Northwest Missouri Genealogical Society (NWMGS) is going to have an event to celebrate the release of the 1940 Census on Apr 2 at East Hills Library at 6:30pm. It is open to the public. There will be an octet from an all-female singing group, a speaker from the National Archives in KC, cake/punch/hors d’oeuvres and a raffle. Come for all of it or just part – up to you. The 1940 census is the first time that the NARA is forgoing the process of releasing the census on microfilm and going straight to digitization.
