1940 Census

11 more days until the 1940 Census!

On April 2, 2012, NARA will provide access to the images of the 1940 United States Federal Census. Unlike previous census years, images of the 1940 U.S. Federal Census will be made available as free digital images.

There are no  name indexes for the 1940 census. At present nobody has a 1940 name index. If you would like to help index the census go to and download the program, it is very user friendly.

Although there are no name indexes, check out, a web site with tools to help you find people in the census based on where they lived.
