#1940Census Status Update for 25 April 2012

FamilySearch Indexing 1940 Census Progress as of 25 April 2012It’s been a while since my last update, but during that time, no website has published any indexes. With the Archives.com release of indexes for two states, they take the lead. They have published 1.16% of the 1940 census index.

Archives.com passed MyHeritage.com, at 0.82%, who held the lead since they finished the publication of Rhode Island.

Even though Ancestry.com has published two states, their completion percentage is just 0.30%. For more information about Ancestry.com’s publication plans, see “1940: Why There’s Nevada and Delaware But No Other Indexes … Yet.”

Given that FamilySearch is producing the indexes, it is interesting that Archives.com has published Colorado but FamilySearch.org has not. One can only assume that it is imminent, along with New Hampshire, Oregon, and Utah; all 100% indexed. Until then, FamilySearch.org brings up the rear with 0.21%.

FamilySearch Indexing has finished 19.9% of the census (not counting the territories, for which I have no data). Wow! If we can keep up this pace…

  1. I am curious to know what 100% indexed means in familysearch since, on their website, you still can't search by surname in, for instance, Oregon. Browsing at the ED level seems to be what there is.

  2. This morning, Ancestry has 3 options for Residence State: Delaware, District of Columbia and Nevada. Progress!
