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 Stephen Zit Green, my husband’s paternal great-grand-uncle. He is the brother of Fred Ozro Green, my husband’s great-grandfather. Stephen Zit Green (55) is listed with his wife Daisy M. (Hoover) Green (57). Both of them had an 8th grade education. Their children Bonnie Green (19), Francis Green (16) and Chester Green (14) are also living with them. In 1935 they were living in the same town, but not on the same house.
