1940 Kansas Census

The index of the 1940 Kansas Census on FamilySearch is now completed. Kansas Council of Genealogical Societies is very pleased that their member societies responded to the call and signed on to help get the tremendous task accomplished in such a short time. (We were the second state to be completed).
Thank you to every society and every individual member who helped. If you enjoyed working on the project, any of the other states would appreciate your indexing some of their images. We all know the benefits of helping other researchers!

1940 Census

Kansas was among the first five states to have the images of the 1940 census released on April 2, 2012. By 5:00 p.m. that day the indexing began and has continued relentlessly. It is now nearly 5:00 a.m. on April 5 and we have completed the indexing of 15% of the images. Thanks to all who are helping with the project. Take time to browse for your family but keep up the excellent work on the Indexing Project! Get all of your friends involved by having them create an account at and selecting Kansas Council of Genealogical Societies as their choice in the "group list".
