06 Apr Who lived in your house in 1940?
US Census forms are kept secret for 72 years. (At some point that was estimated to be an average American male lifespan.) The National Archives has scanned the 1940 Census and made them available on-line for free. They are not yet indexed but with a little searching you can find who lived in your or a neighbor or a relative’s house in 1940 along with information on family size, occupation and income.
