1940 US Census is 100% Complete! Family Search vs. Ancestry

As of yesterday, August 3, 2012 the entire 1940 US Census is 100% complete and FREE for researching.

Family Search vs. Ancestry
 (Top 2 Websites for searching the 1940 US Census)

I recommend both, but Family Search was quicker!
  • Go to www.familysearch.org to start researching the 1940 US Census. This website produced quicker search results when I search the 1940 US Census than ancestry.com did. This site is always free to use. 
  • Go to www.ancestry.com to start researching the 1940 US Census. Ancestry.com is the #1 website for genealogical records and so much more. I have continually had a membership to Ancestry.com from the time that I signed up in 2007 for many reasons. You will go further in your research than you could ever imagine. This website has a 14 day Free trial, then you'll pay $12.95/month (for US membership, if you sign up for a 6 month membership. A total of  $77 billed once every six months) Or $22.95/month (US Membership. A total of $22.95 billed once a month). Here's more info on the membership pricing >>
As a user of both of these website, here's a few bullet points to consider:

www.familysearch.org:

  • Contains Complete 1940 US Census
  • Free to use
  • Faster Search Results
  • Easy to use
www.ancestry.com:
  • Contains Complete 1940 US Census
  • 14 day Trial (after trial, $12.95/month if paid for 6 months or $22.95/month for US membership) 
  • Slower Search Results (because of millions of historical Records that need to be filtered through.
  • Easy to use
I recommend: Using familysearch.org for the 1940 US Census, then jump over to ancestry.com for all other research.
