My Grandfather was in Federal Penitentiary in 1940 and was listed in the 1940's census as a series 3. What is this?

My Grandfather never talked of his pass so I never knew of his going there.

  1. Contact the US CENSUS office. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1940_United_States_Census


  2. Due to the lapse in government funding, census.gov sites, services, and all online survey collection requests will be unavailable until further notice.

    That is what I got from the search. Hmmm.

    I could not find a BOP designation that would fit. I guess we wait on the budget to pass.


  3. When the federal government gets its act together you'll be able to see the answer to your question here:
