Davis/Williams Family 1940 United States Census Project

August 10th, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments
Welcome to the Davis/Williams Family 1940 United States Census Project. The 1940 United States census records were released by the National Archives on April 2, 2012. The purpose of this project is to find as many family members as possible in the census records using NARA enumeration district maps and census images.

Each family is listed by the head-of-household and will have a link to their 1940 United States census image, the NARA enumeration district map (when available), a personal transcription of the census record, and photo(s) of the family.

If you have any questions or comments, please contact me. If you know where a Davis/Williams Family relative lived in 1940 and would like their 1940 census information posted here, please let me know.
