Lol. You're saying I can't respond to your posts?

It's really hilarious, given that you don't seem to be able to ignore my posts. If you don't like it. Don't respond to me. Otherwise, I'm going to do exactly what I feel like doing. M-kay?

I haven't found anything yet, because all of my relations moved between 1930 and 1940... So, I'll have to wait until it's indexed. :-/

I'm saying I wish you wouldn't because all you seem to do is spout flippancy. At one time I thought you were a very helpful poster. But not so much anymore. Of course you will do what you feel like doing. Just remember some people mistake argumentativeness for cleverness.

You may be able to find them before that. Some of the suggested sites on this thread can help. Indexing is going to take a loooong time.

I found my grandmother, sans grandfather, and mom and my aunt. She is listed with an m for married which is crossed out with a D for divorced, and isn't working yet so I assumen it was recent. I also found my great uncle while looking for them.

My grandfather moved to some other local in Los Angeles. I'm wondering if I should just spend hours looking or wait. I want to document his second marriage though.

I've been thinking that if I could find the phone book for 1941 I could find an area. Anyone know how to access phone directories?

If you're looking for Los Angeles directories, the LAPL has a few available online at their site: ResCarta-Web - Browse Titles

They don't have 1941, but they do have '39 and '42.

Big fail at the ignoring, yet again, on your part. But big marks for the passive aggressive nature of your reply.

Default What I Found in the 1940 Census

I always knew my mom played a steel guitar, but found out that was her occupation, she never said anything.

I found out my dad was married more times than I knew, 5 to be exact, and the last one was NOT my mom, crazy.

Found out where my Grandparents lived and my Aunts and Uncles lived with them and they were not KIDS.

I am having fun with the 1940census, but with no family alive there is still more to find.

Patience is really needed

I didn't say I would ignore you. I asked you to ignore me, if all you're going to do is be argumentative. Thanks in advance.
