Best Helpful Hint of the Day

Question:
Since we have to search the 1940 Census records via Enumeration District, how do you find out what that district is for your ancestor?

Hint:
Try locating your ancestor in the 1930 census, and look at the top of that page for the town's Enumeration District number. (It will look something like this: ED-57) Take that information to the 1940 Census search page and enter the ED number in the appropriate place. Start scanning the pages. Be patient!
