April 2, 2012 the 1940 census will be released! We’ve been waiting 10 years for this one. You will be on it if you were born before 1940. I was. I am sure it will be available on familysearch.org at no charge and on Ancestry.com for those who have a paid membership. There is a good chance that it will be free on other sites as well, but I don’t have that information yet. When I find out I will post it here. I hope it will help all of you who are researching your family history.
