1940 Census Update from ancestry.com



Wowza! Ancestry anticipates having every image of every single 1940 census sheet scanned and online by tomorrow! Isn't technology amazing?

They've already started the indexing process, and as soon as all the pages are scanned, they'll have all hands on deck for indexing.
I am so excited. I easily located my grandparents just by skimming through the 30 pages of our small town. But I have other ancestors I've been waiting to track down, and they lived in big cities or I don't know where, so I'll be needing the handy name search. I can hardly wait!
