I can only hope and pray that when they are finished, it WILL NOT be just an index with no census images. The site you mentioned,, really doesn't help --- most of those index disks have too many misspellings (surname, given name, etc.) and one really needs to see the census image (which also has misspellings, but you can usually unscramble them enough to identify.

This tells me where Ann lived, but not who with, her age or anything else......

Township: Sand Creek
County: Decatur
State: Indiana
Roll: 142
Page: 144

As I said, I can only HOPE and PRAY that the images will still be there.
