Re: Ot in census #general

Friedman, H George

"Please take a look at item 108 of the cited materials. Ot means other color or race."

The problem is, this OT is not in the color/race column as an entry, but is an extra notation in the relation column. I suggest that it is just an extra annotation that the census taker or the taker's office added in scanning over the pages. It may have had no standard meaning. Other notations of this sort are found in the census, which I frequently find indecipherable. There is one like this on this page, in the wife's entry, that no one has mentioned.
