1940 Census Update 3 March 2012

 1940 Census Update 3 March 2012

We are now inside of 30 days until the release of the 1940 US Census images. Tens of millions of people living in the United States in 1940 are still living today, making this a record set that connects people with recent family records. I'm in it!  ;-)

The people in the 1940 census deserve to have their records preserved and made available online. Have you been prepared to assist with the indexing project that will be required for all of us to be able to use indexes in our searches? If not yet, sign up TODAY. THANKS!  ;-)

Families are Forever!  ;-)


  1. Exciting that the countdown that started so long ago is now inside the 30 day mark! The 1940 Census release will be a milestone event for U.S. genealogy on par with the release of the Ellis Island records back in April 2001! Remember that madness?

  2. Yes. And for me, I think the 1930 Census in 2002 was the big one, because of where I was in my research, at that time. I was really happy to be able to add those ten more years on a LOT of names! Thanks for your comment! ;-)
