And you'll be pleased to hear that the majority of this data (the 1950-1995 section) is going to be provided to us in an already-transcribed format, a CSV! Can't wait to see what everyone does with the raw data.  I know I've already got all kinds of ideas: a Twitter bot that auto-tweets Happy Anniversary messages, tracking different ethnic surname match-ups to crudely measure rising intermarriage rates, graphing the most common male-female given name pairs in married couples and how that changed over time, and so on.

I gave Roots-Dev a shoutout in our newsletter, too.  :-)
