FamilySearch.org and its partners will start publishing the 1940 U.S. Federal Census for free on April 2, 2012, the day the census is released by NARA. FamilySearch.org will also provide digital images to tens of thousands of volunteers to start transcribing the records so they become searchable.
Complete publication of the index will depend on how many volunteers like you can help. Recently, I heard that if 135,000 people help with indexing the 1940 US Census, the project could be finished in one week. Are you in?
