Bob (May I call you Bob?), the advance notice was unnecessary. As a genealogy near-fanatic, I have been waiting waiting waiting for the census to get here. In 100 years, my descendants will be combing through this form for information about little ole me and my family and extending my hard work right on through the millennium. I love that.
I also love the fact that Bob's letter was duplicated in five different languages, only two of which I recognized.
This is what genealogists see when they look at the 1910 Census.
Do me a favor. Keep those pencils sharp. Print legibly. And don't forget to send in your 2010 Census form promptly. Bob thanks you. I thank you. Our descendants thank you. (And I think there's tax money for schools and highways and other stuff based on how many of us are living where, so it isn't just all genealogy. But it will be.)
