The Genealogical Society of North Orange County
Counting Down to the 1940 Census
On April 2, 2012, the National Archives will release the 1940 census to the public. While digital images will be available, there will be no name index when the census is first released. In this presentation, you will learn about the questions asked in 1940, as well as how to find your ancestors before an every-name index is available.
