To all the Americans who read RM

STAND UP AND BE COUNTED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! US Census Forms -- the Constitution requires that a Census be taken every ten years -- appeared in mail boxes today ... open it, read it, answer the questions --- this is very important for federal funding in the future, as well as genealogical information for our great-grandchildren.) The 2010 census will not be made public until 2083, although information from the census will be culled, cultivated and used as data.
The first census was in 1790. At this time, the most recent census available to the general public (where you can read the names, etc), is the 1930 Census. The U.S. Census will release the 1940 Census on April 2, 2012.
Now that you have answered the questions, put the form into the SASE and put in the mail ...

The Census is sooooo important. America, Americans ... STAND UP, BE COUNTED ... DO IT.
"we can't move forward until you mail it back."

I couldn't agree more. Genealogy is my hobby, and I can't begin to tell you how important the census is. Mine's done and in the mail!
