We are pleased to announce that our 1940 U.S. Census form is now available.  Unfortunately, because there is so much information contained in the 1940 census we had to reduce the type size to keep all of the data on a 8 1/2" x 11" page.  Unless you are using a large monitor you will probably have to enlarge the view in Word.   Note that there are two pages, the second one contains the "Supplementary Questions".  If your family member was not listed on lines 14, 29, 55 or 68 you will not need to print this page. We regret that due to space constraints we were not able to include the "CODE" columns.  Since these columns do not contain any genealogical valuable information they had to be omitted.   With past forms we spent several months using them to work out the bugs, but to avoid any delays we are asking you to help us proof them.  Please email us with any errors or suggestions you find.  Please be specific as to Column # and error.   Click on the 1940 link below and the 1940 form will open in Word on your computer.  We have intentionally designed this form in Word doc. format to make sure that everyone will be able to open it.

Click on the link for the year you need and it will download the form in Word for use on your computer.  We have found that it is much easier to review your transcribed census records if they have been entered on the computer instead of being written in longhand.  Also it makes it easy to share your transcriptions with others researching the same family.  Simply include the saved form as an attachment in your emails to others.

It has come to our attention that many of you are filling in our forms by hand and not using your computer.  The reason these forms were designed was to make reading a transcribed form easy and to be able to share it with others.  We always provide transcribed census forms for our research clients, which makes a much better presentation than an often very difficult to read copy of the actual report or a hand witten transcription.  We advise that you fill in the form using Word on your computer.
Make sure that you save the original blank form on your computer for future use.  Once you have it saved you can open it up in Word and enter your new data.

Thank you     We hope that you enjoy using these forms.
