Re: Suwalki area 1900

In Reply to: Suwalki area 1900 by Judy Reilly of 15999

These families are readily searchable on the free website familysearch.org under Historical Records search.

The 1930 census gives estimated year of immigration.

Some of the census data has parents or parents in law with ages, within the household so you can search back further generations with those names.

Between census 1910, 1920, 1930 you will see different entries for place of birth, for example one says Russia or Germany and later it says Poland or Lithuania, but they are obviously the same households.

You can also get more information by searching individuals within each family for marriage and death records which often have additional information such as town where born, or mothers maiden name etc. Exact birthdates so they are worth searching individually on the same site. I didn't go that far.

Not my families - good luck
