Four months. Wow. In linking to the release exclaiming the news that the “1940 U.S. Census Indexing Complete” blogger Kent Larsen wrote on Facebook: “The power of crowd sourcing, especially when the LDS Church is behind it.”
Even though they thought it would take a year, the more than 132 million names in the 1940 U.S. Census were indexed in about four months. It will be a couple of weeks before the last few states are published online, according to FamilySearch.
