According to a blog at FamilySearch.org, indexing for the 1940 Census Index is complete. However, the process takes some weeks to actually post all the newly indexed data. That said, six more states went online today. See the blog for all the details…here is an excerpt:
1940 Census Index Project Report—7 More States Coming!
Many of you have asked where we are with the indexing of the 1940 US Census project. Looking on the FamilySearch indexing page, you’ve seen that you can no longer find 1940 census batches to index or arbitrate on the indexing site. You’ve also seen that the interactive map has not changed for the past 2 weeks. Please be assured that progress is being made.
We have indeed finished all of the indexing and arbitration of the 1940 US Census. The remaining few weeks will be used to finish the processing tasks that have to be done to make the indexes as accurate as possible and completely searchable. The folks at Church headquarters are hard at work getting these tasks done as quickly as possible.
On Monday, August 6, we will post 6 new states. These states include Arkansas, Washington DC, Missouri, New York, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. As it looks now, we will have two more releases before the end of the month, at which time the entire census index will be posted as a searchable index.
