1940 Census Now Fully Searchable on Ancestry.com
Posted by Diane
Ancestry.com has announced that its
1940 census index is now complete—you can search it for
ancestors in all 48 US states (Alaska and Hawaii hadn't yet become
states in 1940) plus territories. Ancestry.com's
index will be free to search through 2013.
FamilySearch isn't far behind. Its volunteer-created index is almost
complete, and only 19 states' indexes remain to be added to the
site's search. The 1940 census index is free
on FamilySearch.org as well as its 1940 Census Community Project
partners Archives.com and findmypast.com.
