Are You Ready for the 1940 U.S. Census Images?


In just 35 days, the images for the 1940 U.S. Census will be released to the public. Are you and your genealogy society ready?  Here's how you can get ready for the release and also get your society members involved in the indexing project for the census images:

  • Only images will be available for the 1940 U.S. Census starting Monday, April 2, 2012.  It will takes several weeks until the first partial index is available. You can help speed-up the process by volunteering to index. Click http://the1940census.com/getting-started/, download the indexing software and then register as an indexer.
  • If you are a society leader, visit the Societies page at  http://the1940census.com/society/ on the 1940 U.S. Census Community Project website and sign up today! You'll receive information on how your society can participate in the indexing project.
