The 1940 Census Race is On...

Working Together

Indexing & Arbitration

As individuals work together to bring the Indexed 1940 US Census online, it has become very evident that many wonderful individuals are working very hard to bring this to reality sooner rather than later!

Today's announcement of "6"states up online, indexed and easily searchable is now a great resource for those whose families were living in Delaware, Colorado, Kansas, Oregon, Virgina and New Hampshire! This is truely amazing and is all from the efforts of more than 100,000 volunteers nationwide.

According to the release today, more than 45 million records have been indexed, another astonding fact in the race to completely make these records available to all who need them. There is always room for more indexers and one can sign up by going to this 1940 link. So how is our color coded United States looking now?

Slowly this map is filling in and it shouldn't be long till another large group are added to the current 6 that are now fully indexed. Checking out the 'State by State' break down, one can easily see the progress of their state. My home state is at 31% which to me is fantastic.

There are even some online classes available to help you understand how to use the information from the US Census records to aid your genealogical research. The classes available are as follows:

Lots of feedback and posts are also available on Facebook and the 1940 website, so be sure to check in and see the progress being made by a great community!!!

Thank you All !!!!!!!!
