Welcome to My First 40 Finds in the 1940 US Census! This blog series is a tribute to the first 40 entries that I located without the use of an index.
The 1940 US Federal Census was released online to the public on April 2, 2012. Within the first three days, I had already found 40 families from my various tree branches. I spent six months prior to the release researching the exact addresses and locations for these families so I could find them quickly upon the census release.
This 1940 US Federal Census entry features the family of Anna Elizabeth (Doty) Head, the great grandmother of the husband of my sister-in-law. That’s a mouthful, isn’t it? Her husband Frank Willie Head had passed away thirteen years earlier in 1927. Mrs. A. E. Head was 61 years old with a 7th grade education. She was living with two of her sixteen children, her youngest sons Glenn (21) and Lloyd (17). The three were living together in the same house as they were in 1935.
