Thank you for posting an interesting article. I was curious about the
mention of Ancestry & Heritage Quest doing indexing. I have seen
information about FamilySearch with their volunteer indexing for the
1940 census, and the involvement of Ancestry, Archives.com, and
findmypast. Where did you find out about the involvement of Heritage
Quest? If there was anything out there about that I sure missed it.
Thank you for any enlightenment.
