Re: Help with 1910 census #usa #records

In my family tree, I have numerous instances in US censuses from the early 1900s, where the siblings of a wife were listed as boarders. It could appear at first that they are unrelated to either the husband or wife, if the maiden surname of the wife was unknown.

I've also occasionally seen where a cousin or brother-in-law is listed as a lodger or boarder. I have one instance in my tree where a widowed mother listed her three adult daughters as boarders.
