1940 US Census Release Day

The 1940 US census was released this morning! My plan was to look for my easy to find grandparents before work and then focus on the harder to find ones this evening. Hahahah... The demand on the archives.gov site meant that this was not possible, but I am hoping to be able to find everything tonight or tomorrow. Until then, I index!

Were you able to find your relatives on the 1940 census yet? Have you began helping with the indexing project?


  1. I found the two I most wanted - my 83-year-old parents! See my blog post at http://abt-unk.blogspot.com/2012/04/1940-us-census-success.html. Haven't checked FamilySearch yet - are images available to index there?
