SALT LAKE CITY — 1940 U.S. Census records from six states — Delaware, Colorado, Kansas, Oregon, Virginia and New Hampshire — are now indexed and searchable on familysearch.org.
Also, records for more than 20 states are at least 85 percent completed thanks to the efforts of more than 100,000 volunteers, according to a news release from FamilySearch.
Also, indexers are finished indexing records from 10 other states — Indiana, Nevada, Wyoming, Alaska, Arizona, Florida, Idaho, Vermont, Montana and Mississippi — which will go through the final completion check process before being put online.
Day-to-day indexing status of the indexing effort is online at the1940census.com dashboard and search completed states at familysearch.org/1940census.
Outside of the 1940s census, eight other collections from Brazil, Italy, United Kingdom, Canada and the United States also have been recently completed.
Ten other collections, including ones from Argentina, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Panama, Slovakia, Sweden and Venezuela, have recently been added for indexing.
