  1. This is super! It was easy to customize my page (mostly I just omitted things I don’t use). This is something many of us had asked for. Thank you for listening and making it friendly.

  2. Thank you so much for giving us back the Records Collection with the individual Census Years. I missed it. It was one of my most used tools. I am so glad to see it back. You listened and responded. That’s what I consider good service.
    A very appreciative customer,
