52 Weeks of Abundant Genealogy - Week 15

Week 15: Volunteers: Tell us about a volunteer you appreciate. What does this person do for the genealogical community? How has he or she touched your heart?
This is your chance to show some love for those who selflessly give their time to family history.

I just want to recognize and salute all of the volunteers who are indexing the 1940 Census.  No other project of this size has ever taken place by so many volunteers of the genealogy community.  I think it is astounding that so many people have agreed and are working feverishly even as I type this post - just to make it easier for all of us to find our ancestors, or ourselves. Pats on the back to all of you [myself included] and keep up the good work!
