A few days ago I published an announcement from Footnote.com about a new Great Depression Collection the company has added. That announcement is at http://blog.eogn.com/eastmans_online_genealogy/2009/03/footnotecom-releases-great-depression-collection.html. I then wrote my impressions of the new interactive 1930 U.S. census that is a part of that collection. My comments are at http://blog.eogn.com/eastmans_online_genealogy/2009/03/commentary-footnotes-interactive-1930-census-and-the-great-depression-collection.html.
Now Beau Sharbrough, former VP of Acquisitions at Footnote, has written about his impressions of the new collection and has offered step-by-step instructions in an article titled, “1930 Census - WWII Collection?”
In this article Beau describes some of the information he found in the new collection. In one case, the info about one ancestor was easy to find, but another person in the family tree required some sleuthing before surfacing.
If you are a Footnote user, or if you are thinking about using the service, I'd suggest you look at this and Beau's other articles on The Unofficial Footnote Blog (TUFBLOG) at http://tufblog.com.
