Marie, You may be able to go to your main library in your town and look it
No, the soundex is not in alphabetical order. Once you find the microfilm
that has your soundex code, you have to scroll to the code - and then it
goes in alphabetical order by first name, not last.
But I'm not sure what Marie means about looking up an address in the census.
If you just want an address, you can find directory's >from whatever year
you want - on microfilm.
The 1920 census is indexed by soundex code, so you can find anyone's census
- for that year, and 1900 which is fully indexed as well - quite easily.
For most of the States, 1910 is not indexed and you'll have to know the
persons address to find the census. So you'll have to find a directory and
"look up" the person you're looking for.
But then you'll needed to find out what E.D that address is located in. For
Brooklyn, I would guess the NY public library would have those ED's and
maybe the the Fed. Archives on Varick St.
