April 26, 2012 - 1940 US Census Records

The 1940 US Census Records were released to the general public on April 3, 2012 through the "http://1940census.archives.gov" website free to the public. Since that date I have been searching for Beeman and Related families and have discovered a number of census records for these families.

You can view the US Census Records that I have found, transcribed and uploaded to this website by visiting the "Whats New" link in the "Information" pull down menu. Then scroll down the page until you find the census record entries.

If you believe that I have made an error or wish to contact me about a census entry please contact me via the "Contact US" link in the left column menu on each web page.
