2010 U.S. Census Will NOT Be Destroyed!


Emails, Email Lists, Blogs and every other concievable communication channel is being used to transmit an incorrect issue that the 2010 U.S. Census will be destroyed. According to the National Archives on their NARAtions web site, Paul Wester, head of the Modern Records Programs at NARA, states: "Portions of the genealogical community are under the impression that the 2010 Decennial Census forms will not be preserved by the NARA. This impression is mistaken." Here is their web site... go check it out for yourselves: http://blogs.archives.gov/online-public-access/?p=1192

The 2010 U.S. Census will **not** be destroyed!!!

Beware of rumors that do not cite authoritative sources. Check Snopes.com for what they may say about these generally false reports wrapped around a tiny bit of fact.
