1940 Monroe Co., Tn. Census Index
Transcribed by Joy Locke
Please read the following directions first!
The above are text files of the index to be used for research only. Ignore information after the names. Just do a search on familysearch.org or ancestry for the names on here that are head of household.
Familysearch.org - free access
You’ll need to sign up and sign in for this.
It is a paid subscription. However I believe 1880 and 1940 are free to non-subscribers. Just try it.
We are not to be held accountable for mistakes on the names as many are difficult to read and many were misspelled. If you can correct the names please copy and paste firstname.lastname@example.org to your email request
This is an index only. For the census information on "one or two families at a time", contact Joy: copy and paste: email@example.com to your email request.
If you can’t access either Ancestry.com or familysearch.org, you can request a lookup. When you e-mail our look-up people, please type in the subject heading: "census look-up". We get so much mail and many are suspect as viruses. That goes for any look-up, otherwise it could be deleted. DO NOT send the same request to both look-up people at the same time. Thanks.
We will not look up a child who might be living in any given household of a surname such as Jones or Smith, there are simply too many to look up!
The information to be obtained from the 1940 census is: head of household, spouse if there is one, children and others living within that household. For each name given, there is an age, single, widowed or divorced, person's birthplace, residence in 1935, education, employment status includes occupation and even income.
