The Daily Genealogist: 1940 census usage

Last week’s survey asked about your research plans regarding the 1940 census. The results are:


53%, I will do some searching in the National Archives images immediately, but do most of my research after the name indexes are released.
24%, I will wait to do my research until after the name indexes for the 1940 census are available online.
18%, I will immediately use the images provided by the National Archives - without an index - and will do most or all of my research soon after the release.
5%, I do not plan on using the 1940 census.


This week's survey asks about whether you’ve used the 1940 census since it was released on Monday. Take the survey now!

Your survey only lets one choose between using the National Archives website and using other websites. I've used, FamilySearch, and the National Archives. I used the others for the states they had while the National Archives wasn't working.

I'm one of the people who said I would wait for the indexing. That's true for any serious research, but it's just fun to look for people that I already pretty much know all about.
