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 Wilma Marian (Green) Wait, the great-grand-aunt of my husband. Wilma Green was the sister of my husband’s great-grandfather, Fred Ozro Green. She was the wife of Donald Russell Wait. Donald was 31 years old while Wilma was 27. Both of them had a high school diploma. They were living with their young son Kenneth Green (3). In 1935, the couple lived in the same town but not in the same house.
