First Look at 1940 U.S. Census Page

It's 6 a.m., and do you know where your favorite blogger's been?

Yep, trying to get into the 1940 United States census at and at  Fail.  The NARA site doesn't respond, and the Morse site says "Page not found" for my San Diego page. has images from Delaware posted.  Here is one:

This is not a page for my people, but I wanted to be one of the first to post an image.

The sampling persons on the page above are Vera M. Spahn (she has a social security number) and Samuel Truax (he made $2300 in 1939).  Vera's sampling entry did not have responses to the "married women" questions.

at 6 a.m., had links to census page images for nine states and territories - American Samoa, Delaware, District of Columbia, Guam, Indiana, Maine, Nevada, Panama Canal zone, Rhode Island and virgin Islands.

Who will be the first genea-blogger to actually find their family in the 1940 Census images?  I'm trying!

Update 7 a.m.:  Judy G. Russell posted the first image of a geneabloggers family in at 6:28 a.m. PDT.

I'm so jealous! I'm still waiting for pages to load!

Well, probably not me--it won't take me to the page for the enumeration district.
