      The 72-year wait is over. On April 1, 1940, there were 132,164,569 people living in America. And today, 87 percent of Americans can find a direct family link to one -- or more -- of them. When the 1940 U.S. Federal Census is opened to the public this April, you'll have a window into every one of those 132 million lives.

            "Tomahawk" is an American Indian term to describe a type of ax or blade used for a variety of purposes. This tool was originally made of rock with a wooden handle until Europeans brought iron technology to the new world. A blacksmith is demonstrating how a piece of iron is heated in a forge and the soften red hot metal is pounded into an ax shape on an anvil. The process is slow and repeated many times but the end result is an amazing tool.

              Trees offered our ancestors the resource to cut lumber from logs and build their first shelters on the frontier. My great, great grandparents owned a sawmill in Mankato MN starting in the 1860’s. My logo is a tintype of that family taken about 1865. It was great fun to find this operating sawmill and exciting to film how it worked. Living history is what breathes life into your family stories and will help make history come alive.
