Help is available if you, like myself, are having trouble understanding some of the codes in the 1940 census.  Thanks to Steve Morse, the codes have been demystified.  Head over to Steve’s website, find the column with the tricky code that has you stumped and select the code from the drop-down menu.  The explanation will appear under the code.

Thanks, Steve for all the help you have given genealogists and census diggers in particular!
