1940 Census Will be Free on Ancestry.com
Posted by Diane Haddad
  -  Genealogy Insider - Family Tree Magazine

Subscription genealogy website Ancestry.com has decided to make the 1940 census images and index—which will be on the site after the 1940 census is opened next year for research—free to search and view through 2013

That’ll be more than 3.8 million images with 130 million records. Even better, they’ll be indexed by 45 fields, meaning you’ll be able to search on the name, street address, county, state, parents’ birthplaces and more. 

The records won’t be on Ancestry.com right when the census is released April 2, 2012. Ancestry.com’s press release says they’ll commence “streaming onto the website in mid-April 2012.” 

Can’t wait until mid-April? The record images will be available first on the National Archives’ website, but they won’t be searchable right away by name.
