Re: 1940 Census and my family - more missing people #general

Try the search tools at stevemorse.org and locate the the census
enumeration district, then read through all the pages until you find
their address. If you can't find the street, or their street number
you will know they were skipped by the enumerator.

If you haven't used this method before, start here
http://stevemorse.org/census/quiz.php

According to a message posted here several months ago, the 1940 census was
undercounted by about 7.5 million people.

It wouldn't surprise me that there are many transcription errors as well
but using the method above, you will know for sure if their street was
included and they were missed, or if there was a transcription error.

I have not been able to find my grandparents, Tillie and Jacob Gerber, in
Chicago in the 1940 census, despite trying every combination of misspelling
I can think of (and using all different types of wild card combinations).

Nor can I find my mother, Rose Gerber (born 1918), who probably was still
living with them in Chicago, or in Washington, DC, where she eventually
moved (I don't have the exact date of her relocation).

My mother's brother, Norton Gerber (born 1915), is also not to be found
anywhere, in Chicago, or any other place...

Searching for Abe and Morris FISHMAN #ukraine

Ellen Korpi <korpi@...>
 

Fellow researchers,

In the 1915 NY census, my maternal grandmother is living at 23 Meserole
St, Brooklyn NY with her mother Mary (Machlia) FISHMAN and two half
brothers Abe and Morris FISHMAN, aged 30 and 34 respectively (born
approximately 1885 and 1881). Family lore is that one moved to Atlantic
City and the other to Philadelphia. I have found a ton of Abe and Morris
FISHMANs on the data bases in those locations but can't seem to connect
any to my grandmother. Nor have I connected these two FISHMANs to any
arrivals at Ellis Island. This family came >from Nikolayev, Podalia,
Ukraine.

Please contact me personally if you have any Abe or Morris FISHMANs of
approximately those birth dates >from New York, Atlantic City or
Philidelphia on your tree and think there might be a link. Of interest is
that I see a mother/son Mary and Morris FISHMAN in the 1920 census in
Atlantic City living with a Charles and Lena FISHMAN and their children
Henry, Florence and Ethel (Lillian born to that family several years
later).

Also of interest is that my grandmother's death certificate in 1930 when
she had been living in the Bronx with my grandmother , was witnesses by a
Sam FISHMAN, "son" who had her buried at Montefiore Cemetery in Brooklyn.
I am wondering if Sam might have been her grandson.

Many Thanks! Ellen Korpi

Surname question #general

Keith Jacobson <keithj@...>
 

Hi,
I'm trying to locate a passenger record for an ancestor, but I'm having a
hard time due to the last name of the person. The name is "MIZEL", but I'm
guessing that is not the person's birth name and the name he used when
arrived in the US in the late 1800's. Any suggestions on the best way to
find the original last name? Census records have various immigration years
attached to that person, so searching a specific year is next to impossible.

Thanks,
Keith Jacobson

Re: 1940 Census and my family - more missing people #general

Werner Hirsch
 

There are definitely problems with the indexed 1940 Census. When this census
first became available, without the index, I was able to find me and my parents,
living with another family in Hartford, CT, when I searched the index by street
address. Now that the index is available, neither my parents and I, nor our
host family appear to be listed.

After much searching, I was finally able to find myself, but instead of Werner
HIRSCH, I was listed as "Wenner Hirach." My mother Else was listed as "Alee,"
and the host family's name KARLINER was listed as "KOBILNER." Elsewhere in the
census, my father-in-law, Louis, was listed as "Imes" and my mother-in-law,
Helen, was listed as "Achin."

Searching the index for other names as well, I found that I got the best results
when I entered as few letters as possible in the name field, with wild cards,
and entering the place of residence, when known, and the year (approximate is
OK) and country of birth.

Good luck!

Re: 1940 Census and my family - more missing people #general

Joel Weintraub
 

Group,

Now that the 1940 census has been name indexed by two different and
independent groups, I'm seeing an increase in the number of inquiries here
about "missing" 1940 relatives. One recent post indicated: "I am feeling as
if there are records that have not yet been added or transcribed." Let's
discuss the "undercount" or those people that were actually missed on this
census. First, you should know that the original 1940 census forms were
destroyed decades ago. The population schedules were microfilmed, and that
master film was digitized by the National Archives and sold to the various
groups that transcribed the census. Thus every group is working >from the
same copy. I don't remember exactly, but about 50 EDs were missing >from the
master film, probably lost by the enumerator or census bureau before
filming, but that's a very small number compared to the 150,000 or so EDs
that were enumerated in 1940.

There are many reasons why people were missed. They weren't home, and did
not respond to the blank forms that the enumerator left for them to fill
out. They were residents of cities or sparse rural areas, two difficult
areas to count. The enumerator was given wrong directions and maps as to
what they were supposed to cover. The enumerator just plain made a mistake
and didn't cover one block. The individual was at college or the CCC or
some other government program and was supposed to be enumerated at their
official address (not the college or camp) and that was not clear to the
family and they were missed. And there are probably additional reasons as
well including the fact that minority groups had a high undercount.

So how many people were missed? Six months after the 1940 census was taken,
there was a mandatory draft of men of certain ages. There were fines and
prison terms if one didn't register, and many more men showed up to register
for the draft than predicted by the census itself. The estimates based on
this information, is that about 5% of the population (1 out of 20) were
missed and as many as 8% or so of African-Americans were missed on this
census.

So... have records "not yet been added or transcribed"? I doubt it. All
the records that are available are on the digitized film gotten >from the
National Archives. In addition, we have two independent transcription
groups/indexes for the 1940 census and thus, we have a very low probability
that both groups would have "missed" a sheet >from the same ED.

As to people who are on the 1940 census that you can't find. That's a
different situation. There are a number of reasons why names don't appear
as you expect, and that's the reason why I've been working for over 10 years
on producing locational aids for finding people. But here's my method for
finding people by a name index. 1. relax your assumptions. I try to
produce 30 or 40 name results when I do a name search and I trust my ability
to have a name "jump off the page" at me that might be the target family.
2. less is more in entering information on name templates. In fact, try to
avoid entering last names, but use first names, multiple names together in
the family, birth year plus/minus 2 years at least, birth location, and
where you expect them to be. 3. use wild cards like * and ?. If you don't
know about wild cards, it's time to learn about them. Just yesterday one
member of the OCJGS asked me to find 5 "missing" families in New York city,
and I found 4 of them using the above. But remember, using name indexes
will not tell you if the person was actually missed. You can't prove a
negative with a name index. The only way to show they were missed, is to
use our locational utilities at stevemorse.org and show that the house they
were definitely in, in 1940, was skipped during the enumeration.
