1940 Census – Day 4

   Posted by: admin    in 1940 Census

Sadly, I didn’t do any indexing today. Sometimes real life gets in the way of other things you want to do, and in this case work had a lot to do with it. I work a sort of split shift on Thursdays and Fridays, with a couple of hours in between. But I had a bout of insomnia last night, leaving me with about 3 hours of sleep, so I went home in between.

And, as I realized later, forgot about a medical appointment for my younger daughter.

So I still have a batch from Oregon to finish.

Here are the states that are up for indexing at this time:

  • Alabama
  • California
  • Florida
  • Kansas
  • Louisiana
  • Minnesota
  • New Hampshire
  • Oklahoma
  • Oregon
  • Pennsylvania
  • Texas
  • Virginia

The remaining states are supposed to be rolled out soon. There’s a map here that shows the states and the percentage of how done they are. It says that Delaware is 99% done and Colorado is 72% done (at the time of this post).
