This is the latest on the remaining States of 1940 Census:
Many of you have asked what the latest status is for posting the remaining states that make up the 1940 US Census project. Today we will be posting 9 more states to the FamilySearch
website. These states include Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky,
Maryland, North Carolina, Ohio, Texas, Wisconsin, for a total of
37,575,945 additional records.
As it looks now, we will have one more release before the end of the
month, at which time the entire census index will be posted as a
searchable index. Next week we expect to publish the remaining states of
Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, South Carolina, and Tennessee. At
that time we will also post the territories of Guam, Panama Canal, and
US Virgin Islands. After that, we will have only the two territories of
American Samoa and Puerto Rico, which we hope to have posted by the end
of the month.
Once again we want to thank the tens of thousands of you who have
worked so hard to help create this valuable census index. Your efforts
have been remarkable and the results are applauded by many throughout
the entire country.
As we bring this project to a close, we hope that you will continue to visit the FamilySearch Indexing site
and index some of the other collections we currently have available.
Now that you have been trained and have such great experience indexing
and arbitrating, we invite you to continue using your skills to make
more records freely available to all who want to discover their
ancestors and their history.
