Steve Morse and the 1940 U.S. Census

All are invited to the next program at the Jewish Genealogical Society of Sacramento.
  • When:  Sunday, February 19, 2012
  • Where: Albert Einstein Residence Center, 1935 Wright St., Sacramento
  • Time: 10:00 a.m.
  • Program: "Getting Ready for the 1940 Census -- Searching Without a  Name Index"
When the 1940 U.S. census is released on 2 April 2012, it will not have a name index, and one may not be  available for up to six months. So finding people in the census will involve searching by location instead. Bay Area genealogist Steve Morse will focus on searching the census without a name index.  The census  is organized by Enumeration Districts, or EDs, so the location needs to be converted to an ED before the census can be accessed.  Morse's One-Step website contains numerous tools for obtaining EDs.  His talk will present  various tools and show how each can be used.
