I am a real genealogy newbie! Just started tracing my ancestry in July, 2010. Would someone be willing to check the 1930 census for a Minnie Thompson (my paternal grandmother) in Oklahoma? She lived in Henryetta, OK when I was growing up but I'm not sure if that's where she lived in 1930. I am also trying to find out the name of my paternal grandfather whose last name is Higgins (don't know the first name). My father Carl Camuel Higgins' last name was originally Coffey (Cauffey?) but his mother Minnie Thompson re-married to a man with the last name of Higgins so my father started going by Higgins at that point. This is a real roadblock for me as far as tracing back through my father's family line. I would deeply appreciate any help!

Please contact me directly (via e-mail) - I'll help with this. Unfortunately 213th St in Queens (I'm assuming Queens Village is in Queens!) is spread over 28 EDs - and there's also a 213th place.

My great grandparents, John & Susan Fennell are on the 1930 Census. The only info I have for them are their names & that they lived in Queens, NY. BY the time the census came out, they should have had 2-3 children. 2 girls & a boy. There may be more. Can somebody please, please give all the info that's on the 1930 Census on them? I'm trying to research my family history for my daughter. I'd be most appreciative. Please e-mail it to: stephaniekenner@yahoo.com

I wanted to thank Mary Jane Smith for her 10-23-2002 post. It deftly answered several questions I had been struggling with on understanding the data in the census!

On 24 Feb 2005 I let this group know that we (Steve Morse One Step Site)
were going to produce a utility for converting 1930 ED #s to 1940 ED #s.

That project is 1/3 completed, and the utility can be seen at:
http://stevemorse.org/census/ed3040.php

I'm doing the table transcription alone, and think I can get it finished
within a year.

Last month we also decided, given the quality of the T1224 description film
of 1940 census EDs, to do a full street index for all cities over 50,000 and at least one city per state. For 1930 only 67 cities on T1224 showed block by block definitions (all streets shown) while the 1940 descriptions show 200 cities with all streets shown. That makes it much easier for our 218 target city transcriptions.

We asked last month for volunteers from our previous helpers, and also asked some Internet newsletters to announce our 50,000 project, and I now have 57 volunteers working on the transcription. We already have up about 5 cities for 1940 at:
http://stevemorse.org/census/index.html?ed2street=1 (default year at top
is 1930)

If anyone on the list wants to help with a city, I have scanned all the
T1224 definitions for the 218 cities, and can get the images to helpers.
See the overview of the project and the transcription instructions, which
also include a link to pick cities (and thus tell us you are volunteering)
at:
http://stevemorse.org/census/1940instructions.htm

Thanks... can't wait till 2012...but doing something about it now.

Use the utility at http://www.stevemorse.org/census/codes.html where we have translated these codes DONE AFTER THE ENUMERATION and thus contain no more information then what was gathered when the person was actually enumerated. For example, 84 is a state code for Arkansas.

In the 1930 census of Oklahoma (Hughes County) above the birthplace of the individual there are hand written numbers. It says above Arkansas 84 what does that mean? Then in the section of the father's place of birth it says mixed blood and above it there is a hand written .32 - 4, what does that mean? And then where the mother's place of birth it says Cherokee. What do all these handwritten numbers stand for? Thanks

1940 US Census in 7 years!!!
Just a short note about a decision we have made. The 1940 US Census will be public in 2012. It's not too early to begin planning for it. I would be surprised given the budgetary concerns and lower volunteer pool at NARAs, that NARA will be able to provide the resources for 1940 (Website, City Directories) that they provided for 1930. However, we (One Step Team) will build on the 1930 resources. Researchers have the NARA 1930 ED finder showing all 1930 EDs, and our Morse One Step utilities that has all streets within all census districts for cities 25,000 or more in 1930. I've looked at one of the 1940 ED description rolls (T1224 series, first 1940 roll) and hope to have access to the remaining 27 rolls soon. They contain a much more complete 1940 to 1930 ED number coverage then I saw for the 1930 to 1920 ED conversions (on the 1930 T1224 rolls). What I'm going to do is to transcribe those 1940 to 1930 numbers for ALL of the 1940 EDs. I've done much of the first roll already. After I'm through, researchers would find their geographical targets in 1930 on the NARA or One Step Site, note the ED #, and then convert it to a 1940 ED # on our free, public website. Eventually we would provide pointers to which 1940 Census film those EDs would be found on, and thus allow people before the public release of the Census, to know where to look for their information. It will be tedious work, but not very difficult to accomplish, say, in 2-4 years.
