Records of Home of Old Israel, New York City and 1930 US Census search possible by address? #courland #usa


Susan Goldsmith
 

Dear Researchers,
 
Does anyone know whether the records of The Home of Old Israel, 70 Jefferson Street, New York City can be found in an archive?  See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Home_of_Old_Israel regarding the Home.
 
Is there a way to search the 1930 US Census (or any census) by address?
 
Thank you,

There is a way to search the 1930 census by address for large cities.
The Stephen Morse One-Step WebPages:    https://stevemorse.org/
has a way to identify the enumeration district for a given street address.
https://stevemorse.org/census/unified.html
This usually gives you one, two, maybe three sets of census pages to sort through until you find the street and house number. 
I have used it several times.

My great great grandfather was living in The Home of Old Israel, 70 Jefferson Street, New York City, in the late 30’s and the 1940’s (until his death).
The records went somewhere, as the place moved / merged with another home in another part of NYC or L.I. (I can’t recall where).
 
Regardless, I found him living there, as expected, as a resident there in the 1940’s Federal Census.
S.D is. 11 or 12, ED (enumeration district) is written as 31 - 23.
 
Hope this helps,

Hi Susan,

1930 U.S. census, and other census years, can be searched by address via Steve Morse's amazing search tool:  https://stevemorse.org/census/unified.html

Be sure to choose the census year you want to search from the drop box, as ED's (enumeration districts) changed between census years.

When prompted, put in the cross streets to help pinpoint the ED.

Have you contacted or searched  the 

Center for Jewish History 15 West 16th Street, Ny, Ny 10011‎


www.cjh.org
This is a wonderful resource. They have archives for many old Jewish Organizations based in NYC. I have also found information at the Museum of the CIty of NY and the NY Public Library,
Good luck on your search.
