Without an every name index, accessing the page where your Grandpa Joe and Great Aunt Catherine are listed will be very time consuming.
For ancestors in larger cities, one could use cryptic enumeration maps and surviving city directories. See Valerie Craft’s How I’m Looking for Grandmama in the 1940 Census.
But for most of us, the 1940 census will be a series of hit and miss mouse clicks through hundreds of images until the index is complete.
If you have a website blog, why not support the 1940 Census Project by adding this banner to your site?
