  U.S. Federal Census relative to Moore & Pilcher

The 1940 census was released in April of 2012 and thanks to volunteers, the entire Federal census which included 132 million people living in the 48 continental U.S. was indexed within months, and is searchable for free at FamilySearch. This census schedule is different than previous years, asking additional questions regarding previous residence in 1935, years of education, and industry. The bottom of the page also includes supplementary questions for those persons who were enumerated on lines 14 & 29 and lines 44 & 79. For an enlarged image view of all the columns, questions asked, and explanations - click here.

It should be noted that census takers were asked to record information about all those who were in a household on the census day, which was 01 Apr 1940. A census taker might have visited a house on a later date, but the information collected was supposed to have been about the people who were in the residence on the census day of April 1st.

Please Note! Census records included on this web site contain corrections to obvious errors and may also include surnames of married women when known. These extractions are not intended as an exact transcription of the actual census, but as a tool to provide more accurate information for genealogical research. I have taken caution with these additions and/or corrections and done so only in a case where other records indicate there was an obvious error. - If you find I've added anything incorrectly, please feel free to advise me.
