...the 1940 Census is released. I have spent the morning hoping to access this new U.S. Census set, however, perhaps particular to my family searches or due to something else - I have not encountered one 1940 Census record.
I know from my own volunteerism efforts with FamilySearch.org Indexing program, that some of these records are still being indexed and arbitrated - at the speed of light - but it's possible that my Boston area searches this morning were due to this geographic location being still a "work in progress," on Ancestry.com
So, it would seem key to keep checking back. AND, the 1940 Census records are *free* on the website. Click on the link above. You have 10 days of free researching.
