In case you didn't already know, the 1940 census was recently released for public viewing. On a side note, census records are not released as public record for some 70 years after they are enumerated to protect the privacy of living individuals. (Though some individuals, obviously, may still be living at the time a census is released.)
Now although the 1940 record became available in April, it wasn't actually indexed at that time making it very time consuming to search. I've been biding my time waiting for the New Mexico index to be completed and I'm happy to say that today I received an email from Ancestry.com saying that "it's soup". Well, that's not really what they said, but if you're as old as I am you'll know what that means.
I expect to dive in headfirst very soon. YIPPEE!!!!!
