"Getting Ready for the 1940 Census -- Searching Without a Name Index"
Jewish Genealogical Society of Sacramento
Sunday, February 19, 2012, 10 a.m.
When the 1940 U.S. census is released in April 2012, it will not have a name index, and one may not be available for up to six months.. So finding people in the census will involve searching by location instead.
Bay Area genealogist Steve Morse will focus on searching the census without a name index. The census is organized by Enumeration Districts, or EDs, so the location needs to be converted to an ED before the census can be accessed. Morse's One-Step website contains numerous tools for obtaining EDs. His talk will present various tools and show how each can be used.
All are welcome to attend the February 19, 2012 meeting at 10 a.m. at the Albert Einstein Residence Center, 1935 Wright St., Sacramento. See you there!
