1940 Census Records To Be Released in April
On April 2, records from the 1940 Census will be made available to the public.
Strict laws ensure that records are only unsealed after 72 years, so many family genealogists, historians and researchers are eagerly awaiting the release.
In honor of the records release, the U.S. Census Bureau is holding a countdown to the April 2nd release where you can find an interactive overview of the 1940 Census, historical facts, videos and pictures. The census website will also directly link to the National Archives site where you will be able to find individual 1940 Census records.
