The California Genealogical Society is part of the 1940 U.S. Census Community Project to create a free, online searchable name index of the 1940 U.S. Federal Census.
In fact, by the end of June, 75% of the entire 1940 census was indexed and arbitrated! More than 105 million records have been indexed, twenty-nine states and territories are searchable by name, and the entire western U.S. is complete.
President Jeffrey Vaillant is our acting project coordinator and he is posting periodic "cheerleading" messages to our group participants.
Thank you to all of our hard-working indexing and arbitrating volunteers!
If you haven't signed on yet, this may be your last chance to participate. Join us and the 1940 U.S. Census Community Project.
