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 Milton Barkley, my paternal great-grand-uncle. He was the younger brother of my great-grandmother, Agnes Berniece (Barkley) Cole. Milton Barkley is 19 years old in this census and is living with his older brother Leslie Allen Barkley and his family. He had three years of high school completed at this time. He had not yet married his wife, Dorothy.
