1940 Census
Lebanon County, Pennsylvania


The 1940 federal census of the United States is being released for the first time on Monday April 2, 2012 at 9:00 AM Eastern Time.  At that time, the census will be available in digital form direct from the National Archives web site.  The bad news is that there is no index right now to the approximately 3,900,000 images.  This census will eventually be indexed by Ancestry.com and possibly by other subscription genealogy web sites.  There is also a program underway that will create a free index through the LDS Church and their FamilySearch.org web site.  Click here to sign up to help create this index.

Until indexing is available for the 1940 census, the way to find people in the 1940 census will be to determine the "Enumeration District" (ED) of the place where your ancestors lived and view the images for that ED.  This page is designed to help you identify the enumeration district number(s) for Lancaster County municipalities.
