Yesterday we made additional updates to the 1940 census site to correct issues with printing and downloading. I am please to write that researchers are able to search, view, browse, print, and download images as of midnight on April 4th.
Demand on the site was almost three times higher yesterday morning than on April 2nd and we maintained the site performance throughout the day.
We share your frustrations with searching for the 1940 census during the last couple of days and appreciate your patience as we have worked with Archives.com to improve site performance.
I will continue to post updates for you here on NARAtions.
