MyHeritage is proud to bring you the 1940 U.S. Federal Census, FREE of charge. Search the 1940 Census here by entering names you're looking for. We are currently undertaking the arduous task of deciphering the handwritten pages of the 1940 Census to create a searchable name index for the census. This is accomplished gradually, state by state, as we cover more and more of the census. It will be completed within 2012, with many states available here before anywhere else.
The 1940 Census included all 132,164,569 residents of the United States at that time, and the armed forces serving overseas, born on or before April 1, 1940.
