Now that we’ve completed the images, we’re continuing with the indexing. Yesterday, the first indexed records were made available – Bristol County, Rhode Island. The index is searchable by names, facts and other criteria, all for free!

MyHeritage is also the only provider to make the 1940 US census searchable in 38 languages, enabling family history lovers from around the world to discover more about the lives of their American relatives.

We will also enable a search of the 1940 US Census on-the-go with a new version of the MyHeritage Mobile App for iPhone, iPad and Android, coming soon.

All this is to provide you with an easy, hassle-free and enjoyable way of discovering more about your family’s American legacy through the 1940 US Census.
