According to a note from Ancestry.com, the company will release six more fully indexed and searchable states to the 1940 U.S. Federal Census collection at midnight tonight (June 28). One problem: I am not sure what time zone “midnight” will be. I suspect it will be midnight Mountain Daylight Savings Time but am not certain.
The six new states include (with corresponding record counts):
These states will join the collection with four other searchable states and Washington D.C. (ME, NV, DE, NY). These ten states (and D.C.) make up more than 39 million records of the 132 million total records to be completed later this year. These records remain searchable for free through 2013 at Ancestry.com/1940.
