Mappy Monday -- 1940 Census Enumeration District Map - Texas - Erath County

1940 Census Enumeration District Maps - Texas - Erath County - ED 72-1 - ED 72-20
National Archives
I was looking at photos about baseball on the National Archives site when I thought to search for photos about Erath County, Texas, where my grandmother is from.  Up popped maps depicting the 1940 Enumeration Districts.  Wow, that will be helpful when the 1940 U.S. Federal Census comes out in 2012.  There will be no index immediately, so having a map to narrow down which ED to search page by page will cut my searching time down to a manageable level.

I believe my grandparents (Tom J & Pansy Johnston) and mother (Lela Nell Johnston) were living in Stephenville, Erath County, Texas in 1940.  The war hadn't started yet, so my grandfather was not yet in the U.S. Navy.  He would be working in some carpentry trade.
ED 72-1 to 72-4
There was also a description of these EDs:


My grandmother's parents, George Warren & Lela Ann Lancaster, were located in Ward 1 in the 1930 census at 1020 W Green Street.  That will be where I'll start first.  Perhaps Tom & Pansy will be living nearby.
