I very rarely go on the Familylink website. I got an email update from Dick Eastman’s Online Genealogy Newsletter. He posted a blog on April 9, 2012 “Entire 1940 USA Census now Avaliable on Familylink.”
-Other members came up with their own versions.
This also goes for all my Samoan research. Each name I do research for there are at least 2-4 different versions of the name.
One reason is the Samoan titles. When a man or woman receives a title he or she is no longer known by the birth name but by the Title name.
I read a Samoan journal on microfilm of an accounting about a man who was just baptized into a Church. The day he was baptized he says he was a new man and no longer went by his birth name and choose a new name and announced this to the congregation and told them to call him by this new name from that day forward. The man was 39.
Well, I'm going to look into this record more....see what else I learn.
