At last, the 1940 Census will be available for free online on Tuesday,
April 2, from the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) website.
Shortly after appearing on the NARA site, the 1940 census will be available at
Archives.com, FamilySearch.org, and Ancestry.com. The indexing process will
begin immediately, but it will be months before the entire 1940 census index is
completed. While you are waiting for the name indices, you will need to search
page by page for your ancestors, so The Genealogy Center at the Allen County
Public Library in Fort Wayne, IN, is offering "Introduction to the 1940 Census"
to provide information on narrowing your search. Sessions are available on
Wednesday, March 28, from 2:30 - 3:30 p.m., in Meeting Rooms B &C; Monday,
April 2, from 2:30 - 3:30 p.m., in Meeting Rooms A & B; and Saturday, April
7, 10:00 - 11:00 a.m., in Meeting Rooms A & B. For more information, please
see the brochure at http://www.genealogycenter.org/Libraries/2012_Brochures/Census.sflb.ashx
Please register for either of these classes by calling 260-421-1225 or send an
