Well, the 1940 census opened today. I wasn’t ever able to get anywhere on the 1940census.arhcives.gov site, so this evening I tried seeing what I could find on Ancestry.com. They had a dozen states or so up tonight, so I decided locate my great-uncle, Grover Cornett, and his family in the Wilson’s Creek area of Grayson County, Virginia. Although I didn’t have an address, I did know that they live in Wilson’s Creek, and that narrowed the search sufficiently to allow me to look at just a few enumeration districts. I found them on the third one I looked at!
Following is a screen shot of the page:
One surprize was that my cousin, eighteen year old Grover Cornett Junior (June), was a truck driver with the CCC’s in 1940. That’s something I didn’t know.
