The LDS Family History Library, in conjunction with Archives.com, findmypast.com, and other leading genealogy organizations are requesting our help to digitize the census records so that it will be available to everyone as soon as possible. Find out how to help at the official website http://the1940census.com/.

Excerpt from the website:

The 1940 U.S. Federal Census is the largest, most comprehensive, and most recent record set available that records the names of those who were living in the United States at the time the census was taken.

132 million people were living in the 48 Continental United States in 1940.

Tens of millions of people living in the United States in 1940 are still living today, making this a record set that connects people with recent family records.

Many of these individuals are part of what has been called the Greatest Generation.

Are you in it?
