National Archives releases 1940 Census, 21 million from count still alive
Let the genealogical hunt begin.
The National Archives on Monday morning released digital records from the 1940 Census, posting a searchable online trove of details on the 132 million people living in America at that tumultuous time.
Of them, more than 21 million in the U.S. and Puerto Rico are still alive today.
I’d love to get in touch with some of these people and find out what they remember.
