Many thanks to David French for allowing me to re-post his message here:

Hi All,

Today is a very exciting day.  The 1940 Census is now available!

Getting Started Researching the 1940 Census

http://1940census.archives.gov/getting-started/

How to Access the 1940 Census in One Step by Stephen P. Morse, PhD &

Joel D. Weintraub, PhD

http://stevemorse.org/census/quiz.php

Other sites are also in the process uploading the census images.

They are:

www.Ancestry.com

www.Archives.com

www.FamilySearch.org

www.FindMyPast.com

It may take a little while for the images to load as many people are

on the 1940′s Census website, but should get faster as the day goes

along.

Also, over 100,000 volunteers will begin working on producing the

index.  You may also join this indexing project.

Visit https://the1940census.com/getting-started/

 

Happy Searching!
