1940 Census is here!

I’m so excited that the census is here, but I haven’t had the chance to do any searching yet.  I couldn’t get the NARA website to open the pages and Ancestry doesn’t have the states I need yet.  I’m happy for everyone that has been able to find people though!

Even though I didn’t get a chance to do any searching yet, I did manage to do a little bit of indexing.  It was easier than I thought it would be and I plan on doing more – even if it’s a little every day.

I can’t wait to hear about all of the great finds and small mysteries that are solved through this census!

    Have you read Dick Eastman’s blog today where he gives alternate places to access the 1940 census? I used
    MyHeritage for Illinois and found myself. Yippee! That gives away my age tho, darn.ReplyCancel

      You’re too funny! That’s exciting though – were you recorded correctly? :)
      I will check out that post. I did manage to get on Ancestry and found my grandma and great-grandma living in Seattle but wasn’t so lucky with my other grandparents. I’m not sure where they were living, so can’t do a search quite yet. My family moved around too much!!ReplyCancel
