FamilySearch Update - 1940 United States Federal Census Indexing Wraps Up
Posted 28 August 2012
By Press release: FamilySearch.org


Volunteers have completed the final indexing batches for the 1940 United States Federal Census! The completed census for all states—132 million people—now fully searchable by name at FamilySearch.org and 1940 Census Community Project partners’ websites. It is anticipated that the free 1940 Census index online will be the most used index for US genealogical research for the next decade. US volunteer efforts will now be directed to the US Immigration and Naturalization project. Other new searchable collections online were added this week for Chile, China, England, France, Germany, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Portugal, Sweden, and the United States. Search these diverse collections and 2.8 billion other records for free at FamilySearch.org.

Searchable historic records are made available on FamilySearch.org through the help of thousands of volunteers from around the world. These volunteers transcribe (index) information from digital copies of handwritten records to make them easily searchable online. More volunteers are needed (particularly those who can read foreign languages) to keep pace with the large number of digital images being published online at FamilySearch.org. Learn more about volunteering to help provide free access to the world’s historic genealogical records online at FamilySearch.org.
 
FamilySearch is the largest genealogy organization in the world. FamilySearch is a nonprofit, volunteer-driven organization sponsored by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Millions of people use FamilySearch records, resources, and services to learn more about their family history. To help in this great pursuit, FamilySearch and its predecessors have been actively gathering, preserving, and sharing genealogical records worldwide for over 100 years. Patrons may access FamilySearch services and resources for free at FamilySearch.org or through more than 4,600 family history centers in 132 countries, including the main Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah.
