1940 CENSUS ARE 99% COMPLETED
but did you know that it will be a few weeks till all records can be viewed on FamilySearch?
- Family Search is doing a quality check of all records before releasing them to the public
- Each record that had a blank line added, will be verified
- Each location for line 17 - 19 will be double checked; especially those for children under 5, or those with "same House" or Same Place".
What Can We Do Next???
Join in the community projects on immigration and naturalization.
The next interesting project at Family Search involves the immigration and naturalization records for every port in the United States from 1860 - 1989. These can be found under "Community Projects" in the drop down lists of current projects. Try the California records first as they are on a beginning level. Each batch has 20 records and I have found all of the cards to be typed. There are few data items required and the records are like the WWI or WWII draft card project. Please read the project information and field Helps First.
