Indexing of the 1940 census for Kansas is now 100% complete. Now just the wait for the index to be processed and loaded on FamilySearch. Other states now indexed or nearing completion (over 90% complete) are Delaware (index already online), Alaska, Colorado, Idaho, Indiana, Nevada, New Hampshire, Oregon, Utah, Virginia, and Wyoming. Thank you, indexers!

The 1940 US Census is now 50% indexed because of the efforts of thousands of volunteers like me.
