If you have been paying attention, you probably already know that the images of the US 1940 Census will be released 45 days from now on April 2nd. All name indexes will then need to be prepared as finding aids. At least two major efforts have been announced that will create such indexes. The Ancestry.com project was mentioned in an earlier post.
Recently a second project was announced. Volunteer indexers are being sought to speed up this process. If you are willing to help check out this link. You will even be able to indicate the state on which you would prefer to work.
