Below, you will find an index of the census sorted by name.  Getting to the page you are looking for will be different depending on what website you are viewing the census on, however, the sheet number in the upper right of each page will be the same no matter where you look.  We used 1940census.archives.gov to view the census but familysearch and ancestry also have it.  The following is based on 1940census.archives.gov.  On the index below, you will see columns with district, sheet, ed page, house, last name, and first name.  Locate your ancestor, then go to the enumeration district they were in;
 

Locate Enumeration District, click it, click census schedules, then view district.

You should now see a census page. If you scroll all the way to the right, you will find the sheet number.

 

 

The 1940.archives.gov viewer also has the pages numbered.  These numbers correspond to the numbers on our transcription under "Ed Page."  It should make it easier to scroll to your page more quickly.
