From IAJGS VP of Public Records re: new 1940 census website

The National Archives (USA), with its partner, launched its new 
website in preparation for its first-ever online 
U.S. census release, which will take place on April 2, 2012, at 9 a.m. 
(EST). The public is encouraged to bookmark the website now in order to more 
quickly access the 1940 census data when it goes live. No other website will 
host the 1940 census data on its April 2 release date.

The National Archives has teamed up with the U.S. Census Bureau to celebrate 
"40 Days to the '40 Census."  which will be using social media outlets to 
get researchers ready. Also follow the National Archives blogs:NARAtions 
( and Prologue: Pieces of 
History (

To find out how to get ready for the 1940 census and learn about a short 
video on behind the scenes read:

Jan Meisels Allen
IAJGS Vice President
Chairperson, IAJGS Public Records Access Monitoring Committee
