Searching for Your Family Roots in the 1940 Census

Written on: March 29th, 2012 in Blog PostsDelaware HistoryEvents at the ArchivesResearch Room

Looking for help in finding a parent, grandparent, or other relative in the soon to be released 1940 United States Census? The Delaware Public Archives can help!On Saturday, April 7, 10:30 a.m. the Delaware Public Archives will present a program about the 1940 Census featuring Jefferson M. Moak, Senior Archivist with the National Archives & Records Administration, Mid-Atlantic Region. Because the U.S. Census is confidential for 72 years, the 1940 Census will be available to researchers for the first time in April. While the U.S. Census, recorded every ten years, has traditionally been viewed as an extremely valuable genealogical tool, there are changes and differences each time it is conducted and recorded. The Delaware Public Archives is sponsoring this special program in order to help genealogists and researchers get a head start on what this census can provide.
