I'm doing genealogical research using HeritageQuest. Why does it list the 1930 census information as partial? When will the 1940 census be included?
ProQuest, the provider of HeritageQuest Online, verifies every entry when it indexes the census records, which takes a long time. The rest of the 1930 records should be in the database by mid-2012, and they hope to have the 1940 census records added by the end of 2013.
You can access the 1940 census records on the National Archives site. The website gives full access to the 1940 census images, in addition to 1940 census maps and descriptions. At this time, there is no index by name.
You can find out more about the National Archives microfilm collection for the 1930 census at
Rockville Memorial Library has 1930 census microfilm covering Montgomery County only.
The University of Maryland at College Park is a Federal Depository. The information about their collection and researching census information is available at:
