Archives.com and U.S. National Archives make the 1940 census free to search.
Family history research is now easier than ever! Archives.com partnered with the U.S. National Archives to bring the 1940 census online today for the first time. Archives.com has built the website http://1940census.archives.gov allowing anyone to view and share 1940 census records for free!
This is the only website where the entire collection of 1940 census images will be available April 2nd. The pages of the census will provide a never-before-seen look into the lives of Americans, at this watershed moment in our history.
As the website that makes family history simple and affordable, Archives.com has built a unique set of tools to make finding your family in the census as simple as possible. Though the 1940 census is not yet searchable by-name, you can explore census maps, descriptions, and other finding-tools to help you locate your family.
To make the records even easier to search, Archives.com has partnered with the U.S. National Archives, FamilySearch, and findmypast, to sponsor the 1940 U.S. Census Community Project. We invite you to join this national service effort to create a free, by-name index for the 1940 census!
Once complete, you will be able to search the 1940 census by-name for free at Archives.com. Learn more at www.archives.com/1940census.
