My cousin recently sent me some photos of my grandfather and a woman identified in the photos as Irene Woodside.  When I did a search on familysearch.org I found info showing her in the 1940 census with my grandfather and one of my uncles.  How would I find more information about this woman?

When you post a question, you should include any location for b, m, d that you are aware of - including Country, city, town as it makes it easier for someone to help.

PS in 1940 this Lenora I Bedford is also listed as living with her mother in CA???

This woman Lenora Irene Woodside, father George Bedford, mother Bessie Jumper is a possibility, but you would need to confirm by marriage or death certs.  The death records or Lenora Irene, Kenneth Sr. and Kenneth jr are all listed on familysearch.org.

https://familysearch.org/   You might want to get the actual certificates to see if you can prove the connection.
