Have you volunteered to help index the 1940 U.S. Federal Census?
I just downloaded a new batch, read the enumerator’s note that “there are no farms” in the enumeration district, and decided to slow down take a look at the occupations.
Farmer, farmer, farmer might not have been too exciting; tinker, tailor, soldier might be fun.
Thinking that it might be fun to record the occupations that I find, I decided to write this post as I index one census batch for a group of families living on Western Avenue in Toledo, Ohio.

Glad no one is timing me. This was a slow batch—all the occupation reading and such. Next batch: Complete concentration!
