The 1940 census will be released on April 2, 2012. This will not be indexed initially, so in view of that fact, you will need to know where your ancestors lived to search those records. I have put the maps and enumeration districts online to help researchers with the new census until it is indexed in the future. If you click this link you will see the 1940 entries.

Lee County Georgia History
Lee County was created June 9, 1825 and December 11, 1826 with lands aquired by the Creek sessions of January 1826 and March 31, 1826. This was an original county. There are different opinions about for whom Lee County was named. Some believe it was named for Richard Henry Lee who first proposed a Declaration of Independence of the American Colonies, but who, so far as anyone knows never set foot on Georgia soil. Others believe it was named to honor Major General Henry Lee, 1756 - 1818, universally known as "Light Horse Harry" and the author of the famous characterization of Washington. It seems plausible that it was named in honor of this Henry Lee, rather than Richard Henry Lee.
The county seat was originally Starkville where the courthouse was destroyed by fire in 1856. Leesburg is the county seat.
