Re: Abbreviation OT in US Census #usa


Instructions to Enumerators for the 1910 census are on-line.

There appears to be no official meaning to the notes/abbreviations you see.

Does anyone know what the abbreviation “OT” next to a name in the 1910
US census signifies? See, for example, the entry for Harriett HARRIS
in the cropped attachment Harris.jpg. I am guessing that it means “Out
of Town,” because that would explain why she is also listed with her
husband and oldest child as Hattie SCHULTE in the second attachment,
but it is only a guess. Both censuses show her as married four years
with one living child, although her listed ages differ by one year.
