1940 US Census

1940 US CensusAncestry.com have announced that it will be making the US 1940 census free to view until 31 December 2012. The records will be released by the US National Archives on 2 April 2012 and then there will be a wait whilst they are indexed by Ancestry.

This census might be handy to search, when it is finally completed, for those 20th century ancestors who hopped over the water before the Second World War.

Familysearch has said they intend to keep the records free of charge, but it is not clear if they will be offering scans of the census as well as the index.
