***REMEMBER:  This is not a source document.  It is merely an index.  If you think you find an entry of one of your ancestors, remember to go back to the original document to check the accuracy of the entry.  This ward was very difficult to figure out the writing so you will find some ??.  First of all, the enumerator used large swirls for the capital letters and they crossed over both the above and below entries at times.  Secondly, he could not spell surnames and given names.  Then, of course, ink smears and such also hindered our transcribing.  The numbering of dwellings and families also was skewed and some of missing. 

 

ABBREVIATIONS used:  dgt=daughter, bdr=boarder, svnt=servant, IL=in law, moth=mother, fath=father, neph=nephew, stp=step, adpt=adopted, gr=grand (like gr son= grandson), sis=sister, bro=brother

RELATIONSHIPS:  There were more than one enumerators for this ward.  Some put child instead of daughter or son, others put father and/or mother instead of head of household and wife.  When the sex of the child was clear, dgt or son was entered.  Sometimes the enumerators got the relationships very wrong and you will find SIC near what was entered.  This means the transcriber recognized the mistake but entered the erroneous relationship.

NUMBER OF CHILDREN:  Instructions for this census was that the question was to be asked of the mother and entered on the mother's census line.  However, at least one of the enumerator put the number of children for the husband and not the wife. 

PLACE OF BIRTH:  Instructions to the enumerator was to put county of birth, if born in New York State, put state name only if born out of NYS but within the USA, and put country only if born outside of NYS.  Therefore, Washington=NYS county, WA=state of Washington, DC=Washington DC, Albany=Albany county, NYC=New York County (Manhattan).  Of course, like anything else, at times the enumerator put in a city and/or town.  If he did, we also used it.  Also, at times he put in NY, which could be city, county or state.

DISTRICTS: Dist A: bounded by Bond, Atlantic, Powers & Warren Sts; Dist B:  City of Brooklyn; Dist 10-C: part of the 10th Ward bounded by Warren, Powers & Atlantic Sts & Flatbush Ave & Fifth Ave in the City of Brooklyn; Dist 10-D:  part of the 10th Ward of the City; Dist 10-E:  10th Ward bounded by Court, Degraw, Baltic & Bonds Sts; Dist 10-F:  10th Ward bound by Fulton Ave, Bond, Schemerhorn & Boerum; Dist 10-G:  part of the 10th ward in the City (much of district very light & hard to read); 10-H:  part of the 10th Ward bounded by Fifth Ave, Unions St, Court St, Degraw St, Bond St & Warren St;  Dist 10-I, the City of Brooklyn west of the 2nd district 10th ward bounded by Atlantic, Smith, Bergin & Boerum Sts (extremely light & hard to read); Dist 10-J:  part of 10th Ward, bounded by Boerum, Schermerhorn, Bond & Atlantic Sts; Dist 10-K, part of the 10th Ward bounded by Dean, Boerum, Bergen, Smith & Wychoff Sts; Dist 10-2, 10th Ward, 2nd District (very light & difficult to read); Dist 10-2b: part of the 2nd District, 10th Ward bounded by Atlantic, Boerum, Dean & Court Sts; Dist 10-2c:  part of the 2nd district of the 10th ward of the City of Brooklyn (very light and in spots hard to read)

ADDITIONAL NOTES:  You will find many ?? in my transcription.  They are there because I was not 100% sure of the entry but interpreted them to the best of my ability.  Also, you will find a number of (sic), this means we recognized the enumerator made a mistake but we are transcribing exactly as written.   Always refer to the film or original census for accuracy.
