1940 Census Now Searchable by Name

The 1940 Census was made available to the public in April 2012 by the National Archives.  At first it could only be searched using street addresses.  With the help of scores of volunteers who indexed millions of names, it is now possible to search the 1940 Census by name.  The Census is available at www.familysearch.org for free.  It is also available for free at www.ancestry.com through 2013.  If you need assistance using this resource, please contact the Reference Department.
