Today (April 2nd 2012) NARA released the digital images of the 1940 Unites States Federal Census.
The census-forms can be found here: http://www.1940census.net/1940_census_form.php
(easier to see than in my blogpost the other day)
And here you can see the questions: http://www.1940census.net/1940_census_questions.php
Even though the 1940 census images are released, they are not all uploaded yet. I saw today that Delaware, Virginia, Rhode Island and a couple of other states have been uploaded.
Here you can read how to find your family in the census (because it is not yet indexed).
|Archives.com asked us to: Share this infographic (and so I have now done 🙂|
The census images will be uploaded and made available on Archives.com (has been selected by National Archives to host the 1940-census), FindMyPast.com, and FamilySearch.org for free for everyone to use.
To get this searchable for free, they need volunteers. Do you have some extra time? I am sure they need all the help they can get. If you only have time for a couple sheets, I am sure they need your help! And I know that they already have contacted the genealogical societies in the US to get volunteers from each area, to get people with local knowledge to work on the indexing.
