1940 U. S. Federal Census

Great news!  The indexing for the 1940 census is over 79% finished.  Texas is 64% finished.  The western states are all done and are already searchable.  Looks like the census will be completely indexed and searchable within the next few months, thanks to all the great volunteers.
