The official 1940 Census website went online last spring. It is an invaluable resource for genealogists, historians, and the curious alike. In the "Getting Started" area, visitors will learn how the census works and the best way to search for specific records. The steps here include five discrete directions for correcting locating a specific individual in the 1940 census records. Also, a series of directed questions will help visitors focus in on getting to the records they require as quickly as possible. The "Census Search" allows users to search for people by location or enumeration districts. For more information, visit the "About the 1940 Census" for historical context as well as a recap of the ways in which the Census was conducted that year.
