Kudos to EWGS & to YOU

Do all of you EWGS members realize how wonderful you are??  Case in point:  we have 31 people on the 1940 Census Indexing Project and as of this morning, we have indexed 17,121 names!  That's 17,121 people who are identified on a specific day and place with other family members and are "found!" I think that's fantastic. A report on the total project said that as of 16 April fully 11% of the project was completed..... and now I'll bet that number is doubled. Many hands do make light work.

And as of this morning, some 66 of you have answered our EWGS survey as posted on Survey Monkey. Your answers were thoughtfully and completely done and your opinions will help us forge ahead into 2013. I will share some of the thoughts with you in a bit. But 66 responding.....that's over half our active membership and certainly proves that EWGS members are keeping current by sitting at their computers most every day. "Wunnerful, wunnerful," as Lawrence Welk used to say.

See you soon..... at the FamilySearch Symposium (28 April), at our next meeting (5 May), or at the May computer class (19 May).  Wish I could hand each and every one of you a bag of these goodies as a tangible token of my thanks........... Donna
