Research Rocks: Combing the 1940 Census
The census rolls for the 1940 United States Census of
New Mexico are now available in Southwest Collections!
Bless the National Archives and Records Administration
for all of their digitization efforts, but sometimes we still
need to feel (microfilm and books) right? I had a
heck of a time attempting to locate my family electronically
(and I am a CDIM). Unfortunately, the online database and
project still need some work, but until then- use the film!
I can’t wait to check them out!! These rolls are hot off
processing, and cost thousands of dollars. Today marks
the first day the rolls are available in Southwest Collections.
There are 18 rolls for New Mexico. Yeaaaaah!
Happy researching rockers!!!!!Explore posts in the same categories: Archives, Connections, Edification, Hidden History, Historic Records, Knowledge, Lineage, Mind, National Archives and Records Administration, New Connections, New Mexico, News
