1940 Newton County Census
Special thank you to the following individuals who helped transcribe the original microfilm for this index: Pat Armold, Susie Hall, Eleanor Bailey, Joanne Swart and Beth Bassett.

These indexes only carry the household, names, relationship and age. For more detailed information, contact your local library or search the web.
Depending when the sites upload records for your ancestor’s states, you may or may not find the records there. Registration is not required to use 1940census.archives.gov, but you may need to register to take advantage of additional features. There are several websites that carry the files - however you may need to register or pay for this service.

Also, as in all census records, the writing was very difficult to decipher. Transcribers simply placed a (?) beside the name they could not read, or typed it out as closely as they could to how it read.
