are indexed at Ancestry.com.  If you have family living in either state in 1940 you should be able to search by name for them.  Good luck and I'll keep everyone updated when they complete other states.

    Thanks for posting the list of the order the states will be made for indexing.  The turn out for the indexing has been great and I hope the effort doesn't fade.


    Familysearch.org (and the sites that they have teamed up with) are rolling out the 1940 census after volunteers have indexed the pages of the census.  They need as many people as they can get to help out with the indexing so the census will be search-able by name for any seeking their family..  


    Ancestry.com has the 1940 census online to view and are using their own team of professionals to index the census.  


    I don't want anyone to get confused.  Ancestry did not team up with Familysearch,  et al so the roll out process will be different from these sites.  Dawn replied with the list for the Familysearch process and the order the states will be indexed.  My OP was about Ancestry.com's completed indexing of Delaware and Nevada (every name search-able index.)

    This is true, Ancestry and WorldVitalRecords( My Heritage), have their own teams that are also indexing. My list is what I have gotten from Family Search and the teams that are working together through the 1940census blog will be updating the list as the National Archives releases states for ALL, including Ancestry/WorldVitalRecords to start indexing. This is a large effort to get these completed for people to view. I am really impressed with all the help everyone has done to get these documents indexed :)

    I just received an email from Ancestry that all indexing was done. Now according to my resources National Archives hasn't released all of the documents. I have sent out an email to see if the indexing is indeed down or what is going on. Seems like all these groups which are all in Utah would be on the same page. You'd think right?

    Interesting.  On the Ancestry site they say they have all the images online.  They have completed indexing Nevada and Delaware (these can be searched by surname).  They are currently indexing District of Columbia.


    From Ancestry.com:

    Progress of the 1940 Census on Ancestry.com

    Ancestry.com took delivery of the 1940 census from the National Archives at 12:01 a.m. on April 2, 2012. As of 4:09 am April 6, 2012 all images of the 1940 census have been uploaded. You are able to browse these images by enumeration district (see below for more information) to find your family’s neighborhood.

    Indexing Status

    Ancestry.com is also currently indexing each page of the 1940 census. Once a state is finished, you’ll be able to search for that state’s residents by name in this collection. Until then, use ourenumeration district finder to help you locate your family’s neighborhood in 1940; then click through to the enumeration district and browse page by page, looking at the left-hand column of the census until you find the name of the street your family lived on.

    Below is the current image and index status by state:

    That is interesting, I am waiting for an email back. I know that National Archives didn't release any before the 2nd. I'm clearifying it, with my affiliate manager to see if he meant images not indexing. It has been a long week getting all this organized. The turn out was more than expected, very exciting though.

    ok, this is the response I got back from the Family Search.org on indexing. The link provides an interactive map that will show the process of the indexing. 

    • There are still states that haven't gone live for indexing yet. All the states should be live in 1-2 weeks and there is still allot of indexing to be done. Here is a map to show you how the indexing is going.https://www.familysearch.org/1940census/

    That makes more sense.  It gets confusing when different companies work on the same project with the same goal in mind, but go about things in completely different manners.  I was just indexing some more at family search and was looking at that map.
