Incredible progress

   Posted by: admin    in 1940 Census

In one day, the progress of the 1940 census for Iowa has gone from 63 percent to 78 percent.

That’s awesome!

Illinois is 26 percent, but the population was so much greater than Iowa that we should consider that significant, as well.

Time for me to do more indexing. I can hardly wait for Iowa to join the list of states that has been fully indexed and searchable.

If you’d like to join the indexing project, go here to download and install the software, then follow the instructions. Video training is available, or you can contact a local family history center for help.
