Ancestry.com Adds 15 More States to Free 1940 Census Index
Posted by Diane

Ancestry.com is opening the floodgates on its 1940 census indexing: This morning, free, searchable 1940 census indexes for 15 more states are available at Ancestry.com. "We ... are now very well ahead of schedule from our initial completion predictions," says spokesperson Matthew Deighton.

This makes 25 searchable states plus Washington DC on Ancestry.com. The 15 new states are:
  • Alabama
  • Arizona
  • California
  • Georgia
  • Hawaii
  • Indiana
  • Kansas
  • Kentucky
  • Michigan
  • Montana
  • Nebraska
  • New Hampshire
  • Oregon
  • Washington
  • Wisconsin
Already indexed at Ancestry.com were Colorado, Delaware, Maine, New York, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Vermont, Virginia and Washington DC.

FamilySearch now has 31 searchable states in its free index (which also is searchable via Archives.com and findmypast.com): Those include all but three states west of the Mississippi River (indexes for Arkansas, Missouri and Texas aren't yet completed). Eastern states with indexes at FamilySearch include Alabama, Delaware, Florida, Indiana, Maine, Mississippi, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont and Virginia.

Since MyHeritage released its 1940 census indexes for Rhode Island and part of New York, we haven't heard about any new states.

The 1940 census is free to search at all the sites hosting records.
