news and notes
February is heart health month, Groundhog Day, Valentine’s Day, President’s Day, and another month closer to spring!!!January has just about walked out the door leaving us with unusual cold temperatures and some snowy days off of schoolWelcome Jeff Mahon (the mayor) back to our pages this month. Be sure you read what he has to say this month. I just love how heescapes to Florida where it is nice and warm while we count the days til Spring.The release of the 1940 U.S. Census will be released in April which for many of us historical and family researchers will hopefullyhold answers to many puzzles. As a professional genealogist I am among many who are fighting to keep our access to the SocialSecurity Death Index (SSDI). We are not out to use these numbers but to be able to help us identify our earlier ancestors as proof for citations in our research.
