1940 Census - West Brookfield

This morning I was able to download all the 1940 census pages for the town of West Brookfield.  I will be adding the information to my database whenever I have a spare minute.  Please contact me if you are interested in a particular family and I will try to find their household and email you the page.  You can browse the images for yourself, if you go to

The enumeration district for West Brookfield in 1940 was ED 14-315.  The census taker named on Page 1A was John Blake.  The first household to be listed was that of Alan Godfrey and his wife Nellie.  The next few families on the page were Merriam, O'Day, Parker, Murphy, Bronson, Hall, Cassidy and Wilson.

Steve Morse's web site also has links to lots of information on the 1940 census.
