National Archives Unveils 1940 Census Website

The National Archives has unveiled the website it will use to release the 1940 census - This website will go online on April 2, 2012 at 9 am Eastern with images from the 1940 census (as a helpful video on the site explains, the census was already on microfilm, but the National Archives has spent the last few years digitizing the microfilm in preparation for the April release date). This website and its images will be free to the public.

The genealogy community will be collaborating to create an index to the 1940 census once the digital images go online - visit to learn more about the 1940 U.S. Census Community Project.
