1930 Census

In April, 2011, the 1940 American Census will be available for research. For amateur genealogists like me, that's very exciting news. Although the census will (perhaps) not reveal any information I don't already know, just seeing it will be interesting. Here is my great-grandmother, Margaret Downing, in Chelsea on the 1930 Census. My grandmother is Gwendolyn.
