CORRECTION: Help with notations on 1930 Census record (reposting from yesterday with correction) #records


Deborah Barr
 

I am most grateful to all the kind people who responded to the question I posted yesterday. Unfortunately, I said rightmost when I meant leftmost!

I meant to ask about the leftmost few columns for house number, etc., which were only filled in for the first person in the family and normally would be blank for the other family members.

In this case, something has been written in columns 2-4. Next to Bernard it looks something like "(illegible) 2 els". Next to Edith it looks like "F see 68 & 99".

I have never seen anything like this before. I thought maybe the "99" referred to line 99, which is Bernard. But Line 68 is for a child of another family unconnected to this one as far as I know. I don't have much hope of figuring this out but thought maybe someone might have an idea.

Again, thank you all who responded yesterday and my apologies for my error.

If you follow the census page by page you will see that 198 Bronx Place has a number of apartments. They may have been visited by the enumerator continuously, but they were not recorded in order on the census pages. You can find entries for 198 Bronx Place on census sheet 7B, 8B, 10A, 10B, and 11B.   Similar markings on four of those pages seem to tell you where to find the other entries for that address.   There are also marking of the same type for line 67 on sheet 2B and line 4 on sheet 11A for other addresses.
