Index to Census, Hendricks County, Indiana, 1940
Transcribed by Meredith Thompson, 2012.
This is an index of all 20,153 people who are listed in the 1940 federal population census for Hendricks County, Indiana.
Some of the entries were difficult to read because of crossed-out words and/or ink smudges. There were also some entries (particularly for the Clay Township enumerations) where the enumerator appeared to have spelled names phonetically (for example, "Joeseph" instead of "Joseph") - these names were recorded in this index exactly as they were spelled on the page.
