An Update to the Update for FamilySearch

On the same day as a previous message, here is another update of the numbers of indexed records for the 1940 U.S. Census:
  • 60,660,160 records indexed and arbitrated (43.2% of the entire census collection!)
  • 9 states published and searchable on These states include Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Kansas, Oregon, New Hampshire, Utah, Virginia, and Wyoming.   
  • 11 additional states 100% indexed and arbitrated
  • 4 additional states that are 90% or more complete
  • Only 18 states at or below 40% indexed.
  • 115,576 indexers have signed up and indexing the 1940 US Census
What can I say, the night is still young and I may receive yet another update from FamilySearch.
