Today’s the Day! 1940 Census slowly becoming available

Slowly but surely the images of the 1940 Census are becoming available online.  It will take some time for all the images to be uploaded.  So have patience…we have waited this long!

Remember – there is still a need for volunteers to index the images – be a part of history – sign up today at the 1940 U.S. Census Community Project!
