Update of the 1940 U.S. Census

On July 9 there were 5 Million records indexed. Amazing !!!

Where are we on the indexing process? On July 9 Rhode Island and Minnesota were added to the searchable data base. 

So now there are 31 states completed indexed and searchable. HOORAY!! California being one.

3 additional states are 100% indexed and arbitrated and are almost ready to go up online.

2 additional states are 90% indexed and arbitrated.

3 additional states are 70% - 80% indexed and arbitrated.

152,861 indexers are signed on doing the project.

.....and again New Jersey is only 37% indexed. So what is happening here. We must be leaving New Jersery till the end???? 

I do hope that you will continue indexing even though California or whatever your home state is is complete. There is still plenty of indexing of the 1940 US Census to go around. AND when we are done with the 1940 US Census there are so many projects that still need to be indexed. Please stay around and help out with all these other projects.

What a great opportunity to help

...... to help while never leaving your home, help at any time of the day or night, help wearing whatever you want, help without getting all dressed up or without putting on makeup.

Think about it, you are the boss.......  indexing helps everyone - everywhere.
