Re: 1900 Federal Census Lookup Request #general

Diane Jacobs <kingart@...>
 

This is an important point when looking for census or any other record.
Don't assume you know the correct first name or even the correct
spelling Of the surname and be creative.

I could not find my husband's grandfather in the l920 US Census until
I learned the address where he lived. For some reason he used the name
George Jacobs instead of Joseph Jacobs and no one in the entire family
ever heard of such a thing. At first, I thought it was the census
takers

Mistake, but soon learned when I found him in the l910 US and 1915 NY
State Census that George was not a mistake.

My advice to anyone searching is to be creative when it comes to
spelling,Names, towns, etc.

Bereza, Motole and Chomsk, Belarus; SINGMAN , SCHIMKOV >from Vilna;
LESNIE >from Poland, England and Australia, SHALTAKOFF ,
GUSSLITZER >from Moscow and Mogilev.


I have a not-so-clear copy of the June 6, 1900 Federal Census for
Des Moines, Iowa (Polk County, Lee Township), Ward 5, SD 80, ED 90
Sheet 5A (I think). The entry is for Mose COHN (or COHEN), his wife, Frieda
and their six children at 212 East Second Street. (I almost couldn't
find this entry- it should have read Ezra Moses or E. M. COHEN, which
was
actually his name.)

The 1900 census is now indexed for several states, including Iowa,
on the best-known (A as in arguably) commercial site, so it shouldn't be
too difficult to find with the "wrong" information as opposed to the
correct information!

Descendant of Rabbi Yosef KARO #rabbinic

Menachem Butler <menachembutler@...>
 

Rav-SIG'ers:

A number of years ago, a handyman with the surname KARO (or a
variation of it) did some work at my home and when we asked him if
he was related to Rabbi Yosef KARO, (author of Shulchan Aruch, Beit
Yosef, Kesef Mishna,) he answered that he was indeed a descendant.
Alas, as I was younger then (and partly because it wasn't my family),
I never pursued this genealogical lead.

Should anyone be interested, I think that I might be able to find
this person. Let me know.

Thank you,
Menachem Butler
