GA and AL 1940 Census Records Now Available on Ancestry





Georgia and Alabama 1940 Census records are now available on the Ancestry Library Edition website. Earlier this year, the CSU Libraries published a blog posting about the release of the records by the National Archives: http://csulibraries.blogspot.com/2012/04/1940-census-released.html However, the records could only be searched by address.

Since the release, Ancestry Library Edition has been working to index millions of records in order to provide searchable information. The project is ongoing, but records for Georgia and Alabama were recently completed. Individuals who lived in Georgia and Alabama can now be searched by name. Ancestry Library Edition is available using the Databases A to Z tab in GALILEO and may only be accessed while inside the Library. To search the 1940 Census and get a complete list of states indexed, click on the link under Census Collections on the main page.
