    Ancestry is not the only one indexing the 1940 U.S. Census!
    Might I mention Family Search (LDS) and their indexing project : https://the1940census.com/getting-started/
    As much as I appreciate Ancestry’s effort to provide the public with free stuff (for once), I feel the quality of the transcription projects is less than that of Family Search who have been doing this for years with the help of dedicated volunteers. Plus, Family Search is always free.

    I would like a simple search engine for the states which are already indexed by name, instead of only PR releases about its progress!
    My state Oregon is among the first, but I can’t find its name index available yet.
    Grrh…

    kaythegardener, it looks like Ancestry.com is in the process of building exactly what you’re looking for.  They recently released new 1940 pages (not sure how many states as yet), one per person in the census, which can be found via a Google search for Name+1940 census e.g. “Anne Everson 1940 census”.
