Re: 1930 census - invented people #usa #general #records

Since my family name was also originally Herskowitz / Herschkovics etc. - I follow the reasoning of many of the respondents.

Also, the suggestion to look at other census records, such as 1940. 

Or these children may have been foster children, nieces/nephews of an over-burdened relative, etc. who were taken in temporarily.

Finally, unfortunately, 90 years ago there was still a much higher mortality rate for young children than today, especially since penicillin was not available then.  So, sadly, you might want to check death records as well.

Good luck!
