George E Mielke in the 1940 census released the 1940 census for Michigan tonight, so of course, I had to start searching! First off I wanted to see where my Uncle George was living. I had previously found his parents and siblings, so he was next on my list. Here’s the record I found:

Uncle George was in the 28 Army Air Corps and was an Airplane Mechanic. He lived in the Third Air Corps Squadron Barracks at Selfridge Field1.

Happy Searching!
