Virginia Maxine (Green) Stech (#16 of 40) – My First 40 Finds in the 1940 US Census
June 16th, 2012 by Jessica

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 Virginia Maxine (Green) Stech, the great-grand-aunt of my husband.  She was married to William J. Stech (31).  Virginia was 22 in this census and has a high school diploma, while her husband William had an 8th grade education.  They were living with their daughter Sandra Stech.  Sandra’s age is hard to read; it might be age 7 or possibly 7 months.

William J. Stech was required to respond to the Supplemental Questions since his enumeration randomly landed on line 40.
