One thought on “Back to pencil and paper for 2010 census – CNN.com”

  1. Paper kills!!!!

    But seriously. I’m excited by this due to playing around on Ancestry.com.
    There is something a little magical about a paper record with the names of people, their occupations, and family members encoded every ten years. You can learn so much by looking at the pages around someone: their neighbors, trends in occupation, where they were born. It is amazing.

    Of course, we lost most of the 1880 census in a fire, so it’ll be good to have a backup these days. đŸ˜‰
