As of 9 a.m. this morning, images of the 1940 census are available on the website of the National Records and Archives Administration. Remember, there is no index to the census yet, but with a few simple steps, you can greatly narrow the number of pages you will need to browse to find your family members. For more details, see our 1940 Census Research research guide. In addition, Ancestry.com is allowing free access to their 1940s era collection through Tuesday, April 10. The collection includes sources that may help you locate a 1940s address for your relative.
