JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen RE: Finding address in the census? #general

Meron Lavie

I find the one-step tool uniformly accurate but also uniformly tricky. Aside
from the obvious (street name changes and numbering changes), GoogleMaps
only provides an approximation of street number location (which I discovered
only the hard way), so if you used Google maps - you may not actually know
the correct corner. Also, I believe I found instances in which a
census-taker skipped an address. Another source of confusion is when the
street for which you're searching is itself on the border between 2 ED's.

and it gets me in the neighborhood but not in the right blocks...
