FREE Access to the 1940 Census + FREE Census Video Course!
It’s here! After being on lockdown for 72 years per legal requirements, the 1940 U.S. Census was released today, and Ancestry.com is giving everyone FREE access to it through the end of 2013! That’s pretty incredible, and it really opens the door for people to discover a love for genealogy. Do you have relatives born in the 1930s but don’t know much about your family before that time? Now you can begin to discover your roots, because they’ll be on the Census!
The folks at Ancestry (and folks elsewhere) are hard at work indexing the Census images (making it easily searchable for people like you and I), and that’s going to take some time; however, Family Tree University is offering a FREE video course that teaches you how to explore the Census right away, even before it is indexed! Watch the video below to see a brief clip of the course, then sign up here.
