That would be the short form. I, too, received this one. My grandparents
received the long form and it's like a book! She's asked me to come over and
help her fill it out. It's actually about the size of an instruction manual
you get with a new tv or vcr. I'm not sure of all the questions they ask.
I am quite disappointed in the short form. No maiden name box or place of
birth. I think the census reports now are mostly for ascertaining the makeup
of the country and how much funding is needed in certain areas based on
income and race. They even run commercials about it on tv and radio. Not
much use to us genealogists (though every little bit helps). I will still
copy it before sending it in to add to all my family research and have asked
the rest of the family the favor of copying theirs as well.
