Ancestry.com's 1940 "Residence" search includes 1935 residence
When you search the 1940 census on Ancestry.com and include a residence, it includes a search of the 1935 residence as well. The search on this screen was for individuals who had a residence of Chicago, Cook County, Illinois.
I was surprised to see the last match--in Orange County.
Apparently it came up as a hit because that person was living in Chicago in 1935.
Just in case you didn't know.
The 1940 census and images are free at Ancestry.com through 2013.
