Re: Ages of child

Surely no ambiguity here. It can only mean 4 years and 7 months. The
fraction is commonly used.

Subject: Ages of child

When I was viewing the 1920 Census, my aunt was listed as being 4
7/12...so I finally realized. The "7" was not clear and I was
trying to \figure out qwhat "4 /12" was. It may be that it was
a ministerial error. For instance, if it was the custom of
writing out the years and months of a young child's age, it may
also have been ordinary to write out also months and days, and
the two could have been mixed up. Like saying 2 and 10. One
person would think 2 months 10 days, another 2 years, 10 months.

Just a thought, Barbara

Olka, Slovakia

I have determined >from LDS records that indeed members of my family are
buried at the cemetery in Kriva Olka, almost 100 years ago. (Olka, to the
uninformed, is triway between Medzilaborce, Stropkov, and Humenne)

However, I just received a note >from the secretary of Olka that there is NO
Jewish cemetery, nor has there ever been one.

I will be in Olka shortly (!). How do I proceed in locating where the
cemetery was? Does anyone have this kind of experience? Hmmm...Kriva Olka
is a suburb of Olka, and perhaps the secretery just doesn't know, or is not
familiar, or -

Thanks,
