You’ll now see an “Index Status” column on Ancestry.com’s census progress chart.

Ancestry.com has published the first searchable name indexes to the 1940 census for Delaware and Nevada.

The site has almost finished uploading records for the states, predicting completion this morning. At this time, Ancestry.com has record images for all states and US territories except Arkansas, Louisiana, Maryland, Minnesota, Mississippi, Puerto Rico and South Carolina.

FamilySearch:

FamilySearch has added a color-coded map showing its progress. Hovering over a state highlights the records-posting and indexing progress for each state (if nothing happens when you hover, try a different browser). On the map, Texas shows as “records unavailable,” but they are online at FamilySearch, at least for the counties I tried.

  • Alabama
  • Colorado
  • Delaware
  • Florida
  • Kansas
  • Louisiana
  • Mississippi
  • New Hampshire
  • Oklahoma
  • Oregon
  • Pennsylvania
