The 1940 US Federal Census is due to be released to the public in April. The images will be available almost immediately at several online websites for you to browse. The indexes that allow each of us to search by name will be worked on by volunteers throughout the world.


You may want to visit Steve Morse's website to learn how to determine the Enumeration District which can be helpful when browsing the 1940 Census until name indexes become available.
