Dear Jeanette

I found your g-grandfather, same occupation, in 1930 US Census, on www.ancestry.com

Name:               Oliver C Land
Age:               68 years

Estimated birth year:               1861

Birthplace:               Georgia
Relation to Head-of-house:               Head
Race:               White
Home in 1930:               Fort Lauderdale, Broward, Florida
Occupation:               Night Watchman, County Machine Shop
              
Image Source:               Year: 7 April 1930
Census Place: Fort Lauderdale, Broward, Florida; Roll: T626_307; Page: 8A; Enumeration District: 7; Image: 0730.
Death Certificate: http://www.rootsweb.com/~flbrowar/howto.html
Ask a Librarian (Broward County Library): http://www.broward.org/library

There were no family members listed with Oliver C Land; next in list were all prisoners. You can find details for requesting a death certificate from the HowTo web site above, telling the authorities exact date of birth, and died after 7 April 1933. I checked FLDI for earliest on hand death recprds: 1936, 1937 & 1938 --- found none.

If you are able to find the exact date of death, you might "Ask a Librarian" from the above web site. The FLDI is not cumulatiely indexed, and so it is an unreasonable taks, to read microfilm without knowing date of death.

Hope this may help.

Rls
