Hi Randy,
Now that 1940 census indexes are available from both FamilySearch (and and Ancestry for California (and 16 other states), will you be checking the indexing quality of the entries you found by browsing (before the indexes)? FamilySearch indexing has been better, but comments and corrections are not possible. In the long run, Ancestry may end up with better entries, at least for the families with interested Ancestry subscribers.
In a related challenge, who in your database has the most documented census entries? Include foreign and state censuses! Answering this will depend on whether you've documented enumerations as a separate event and how you have handled persons who are not the head of household.
Thankyou for a great blog!
