Another reason to say YES

Dick Eastman has an item today about volunteers from the Santa Barbara County Genealogical Society who are trying to identify remains of a First World War soldier found last year in Belgium, along with a wallet inscribed "Central Bank Santa Barbara, Cal". They are searching census records as an aid. This is another example of how census records can be more useful for more than their original purpose, and why it would be a good idea to tick YES to informed consent on the 2006 census.
