1940 census arbitration/indexing as a family

This past weekend was my youngest daughters 3rd birthday, so I have been busy and fell behind in my arbitrating goals.  My goal was 10,000 this week, which means I have a great deal to do if I want to make that goal (6875 to be exact!)

My 14 year old daughter has been doing the indexing and I do arbitrating.  She has set up a whiteboard with the running completion stats from the familysearch 1940 census site.

We have two computers in our living room and we take turns playing music on youtube while we work on the indexing.

My husband joined in with making the "Genealogy Widower" song (he is amazed at the number of listeners btw, thanks all!)   (check out my last Thankful Thursday post if you havent read it)

I am grabbing all the Alaska ones to arbitrate and doing them when they appear, and my daughter reports there are none available to index so if you are holding onto some Alaska ones please get them done so we can finish Alaska!  I see that they are now red and are to return in 3 days.
