1940 U.S. Census Available This Month!

The above scene is from 1940s Guam. Today at 12:01 a.m. the 16th Census of the Unites States, the 1940 census, become public domain and will be available for researchers for the first time after 72 years! The National Archives will provide digital images of the census pages at one minute after midnight.

This will hopefully provide much information for those conducting genealogical research and I am sure that some “brick walls” will be scaled!
