For those that wonder how to find your way to the 1940 census, ancestry.com is offering free access and help with researches. Census takers were known as "Enumerators" and were charged with covering certain "Enumeration Districts". These districts were given numbers which corresponds to the census report you want, so it's necessary to know the districts our families lived to find the census report. (According to the news, it will take some 6 months to collate the entire census for easier, non-emumeration districts viewing). Archives.gov is a government site (free) that can give us help-screens to finding these enumeration district numbers. Another companion site is 1940census.archives.gov Give it a try, and we will look together via the internet.
Good Hunting !
YIKES - I just noticed something on the 1940census.archives.gov site. Simply put I missed seeing the page flipper. When you find the right enumeration district & find the right census report, find the additional pages flipper at the far upper right of the document. You will see PREV image 1 of ... NEXT this means that there are more pages to the census. gulp ... the learning curve was a little long on that one!!!
