1940 U.S. Federal Census

On April 2, 2012, the U.S. Federal Census for 1940 will be available.  The United States has a 72 year rule for privacy.  I must admit that there are probably many people still living that are indicated in this census.  While the 1930 U.S. Census has living people, we are now entering into a realm of even more living relatives.

While I am hopeful of finding some very interesting information in the 1940 Census, I am trying not to set my expectations too high.  As we move closer to present day, there are fewer mysteries that apply to my ancestors.  By the 1940s, I probably already know the locations of my direct line.  I suppose we will see what happens.  April 2nd can't come to soon!
