1940 U.S. Census is Now Available

The information from the United States Census for 1940 was released to the public on April 2, 2012, 72 years after having been collected. Pictured above is one page from the 1940 Census for Sandusky, Erie County, Ohio. Mrs. Angeline A. Corso was the Census Enumerator for Enumeration District Number 22-19 of Erie County. Listed on this page are the families of industrialist William Millspaugh, piano teachers  Florence and Elizabeth Deike, and Sandusky physicians Dr. Fred Schoepfle and Dr. Lyle Steen Hill. By viewing the 1940 Census, you can learn more about the ages, birthplaces, and occupations of family members, as well as a listing of  names of all those residing within each family unit. The 1940 Census is one of the thousands of databases available at Ancestry Library Edition, a ClevNet database. Another free resource which provides access to the 1940 U.S. Census is My Heritage. The census records are not yet fully indexed, so until then, you will need to browse by census tract. Visit the Sandusky Library Archives Research Center to start searching.

In the later 1940's, Florence Deike was my piano teacher. I still remember taking lessons in her home on E. Madison Street.
