1940 Census Indexing on Ancestry.com Update

The 1940 Census became available to the public the first week of April 2012. Originally the ability to search by name was not available because the census was not indexed.

Ancestry.com has been adding indexes by state on a regular basis.  Currently 25 states and the District of Columbia are indexed.  (*) indicates the index was just added:

  • Alabama (AL) *
  • Arizona (AZ) *
  • California (CA) *
  • Colorado (CO)
  • Delaware (DE)
  • District of Columbia (DC)
  • Georgia (GA) *
  • Hawaii (HI) *
  • Indiana (IN) *
  • Kansas (KS) *
  • Kentucky (KY) *
  • Maine (ME)
  • Michigan (MI)  *
  • Montana (MT) *
  • Nebraska (NE) *
  • Nevada (NV)
  • New Hampshire (NH) *

      HI Jim,

      You are correct.
      I just did not post another blog after they became available.

      Thanks,
      Marion
