danceparty1940.gifThe release of the 1940 census is one of the most anticipated genealogical events ever. How can you have an event like this without a kickoff party? And what's a party without gifts?!

If you or your library, archives, or society is hosting a 1940 census kickoff event, Archives.com will provide up to 3 free memberships, which can be used as door prizes or raffle items. Plus, we'll send you handouts with essential census stats and information. To receive these, simply email 1940census@archives.com with the name of your organization and details about your event.

Archives.com is proud to be partnering with the National Archives and Records Administration to bring you the 1940 census at 1940census.archives.gov beginning April 2. We are also pleased to be a co-sponsor of the 1940 U.S. Census Community Project, working to create an every-name index to this valuable resource.

It's almost time to put your party shoes on! Put Archives.com on your guest list. We'll even bring the gifts.
