1940 Knickerbocker Census

Here’s the 1940 census showing the Knickerbocker family (The part that’s still at home) in Minnesota. A few of the interesting things here are:

1) My mom, Marjorie A. is listed ( yay Mom)

2)My aunt Mildred has a different last name. Curious.

Here’s the image:

The 1940 census is here

The 1940 census has come out. It’s has not all been scanned electronically yet and it will be quite some time until you can search by name. However, if you know what state, county, city and enumeration district to look in and you happen to be looking in a state that has been scanned, you can get cool stuff like this:

Original data: United States of America, Bureau of the Census. Sixteenth Census of the United States, 1940. Washington, D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, 1940. T627, 4,643 rolls. Maine, Somerset, Fairfield, Enumeration district 13-19A. Page 24.

There’s a bunch on interesting information here. One of the more interesting things is that the person labeled “Olga” is really my Aunt Alice. Her parents and her siblings called her Olga for much of her life. The original Olga died as an infant and when Alice was born, even though they gave her the name Alice on her birth certificate, called her Olga.

It’s also interesting to me that all the guys that were old enough worked in the pulp mill.
