A great question posed to the geneabloggers by Amy Coffin of the We Tree blog.
Who are you seeking in the 1940 census? Of course, we have long lists of family members that we would like to see where they are at. But, who do you really seek? Who is the first person you will look for, and why that family?
My reply to this is the Jaeger family. Which, is my paternal grandmother’s family. In 1940 my grandma will be 21 and married with her own children. But, that is not what I want to know. I will be looking for her parents, Fred and Ella (Jonas) Jaeger.
Why the Jaeger’s? Well, let’s just say that I have been given some advice from another realm that needs to be investigated. I do not want to say to more because, if its true I will share it here anyway. If not, well then I move on to my next family mystery.
So, who are you seeking in the 1940 census?
