I am pleased to announce the indexing of the 1940 Census by has been completed!!  They are still working on getting the last states searchable but Missouri is live and ready to be searched!

Testing some of the names used in my previous posting generated better results than I received when searching's indexing method appears to have been far superior to that of  FamilySearch used two separate transcribers for each page, compared the results, and an arbitrator was used if any discrepancies were found in the data.

You can begin your search of their 1940 Census index *here*.  I think you'll have greater results with less errors!

Good luck in your searching!!
