This event is co-sponsored by the Middlesex Genealogical Society.
The 1940 Census will be made publicly available on April 2, 2012. Taken during the Great Depression and the New Deal and on the brink of U.S. involvement in World War II, the 1940 Census documents Americans during a time of national struggle. There is not currently a 1940 census index, but this presentation will describe how you can uncover genealogical information without an index.
