We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the Population Schedules for the 1920 Census, the Population Schedules for the 1930 Census,and the Population Schedules for the 1940 Census in the Records of the Bureau of the Census (Record Group 29) that may contain information about John Vaughan. The 1940 Census schedules are digitized and available using the Catalog. See NARA’s 1940 Census Records web page for more information For access to the non-digitized schedules, please contact the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
