FindMyPast.com, a site from brightsolida partner in FamilySearch’s 1940 Census Community project, creator of the recently launched censusrecords.com site, and future host of 1940 census recordshas announced a new “We’ll find them for you” service.
Visit findmypast.com, submit the name and state of the person you plan to search for, plus other details you might know, and you’ll get an email from findmypast.com when the persons indexed record becomes available on the site.
This will start working as name indexes are made available for 1940 census records.
MyHeritage.com is promoting something along similar lines include if you have a family tree there, you’ll get a notification when a 1940 census record matches anyone on your tree.
On Ancestry.com, you’ll presumably get a “shaky leaf” hint if an indexed 1940 census record matches someone in your Ancestry Member tree.
