There are lots of websites and resources you will need for your census research including access to City Directories to help you locate an address for your ancestors. As the 1940 census has not been indexed as yet, you could try searching for your ancestors on the 1930 census first as this census has been fully indexed and may be easier to locate your ancestors than the census of 1940. Furthermore, if you find the Enumeration District for 1930, there are websites available which will convert the 1930 Enumeration District number and provide you with the Enumeration District number for 1940. This will significantly reduce the time it will take to learn and work out the Enumeration District by other methods.
