Famous Census Search Contest Returning

Our "find the famous person in the census" contests are returning, with prizes. We will be announcing new contests on an ongoing basis on our new website Famous Census (http://www.famouscensus.com/). Two new contests will be announced on that site tomorrow at 8 and 11 a.m. Pacific Time.

Winners will be listed on our "Famous Census Search" Wall of Honor.

Our prizes will initially be copies of Elizabeth Shown Mills' Quicksheet for Citing Online Historical Resources. If your group, business, or society would like to donate prizes, please contact me at mjnrootdig@gmail.com.

Questions about the contest can also be sent to me at mjnrootdig@gmail.com. Submissions must be made to the mailing address listed in the post announcing the contest.
