***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:  The 3rd Ward was divided into 6 districts, all but one defined by boundary streets: 3, 3rd Ward (part) of City of Brooklyn; 3-2, 3rd ward bounded by Clinton, Joralemon, Boerum & Atlantic Streets; 3-3, 3rd Ward bounded by Joralemon, Hicks, Montague, Clinton, Peinepont & Fulton Sts of City of Brooklyn; 3-4, 3rd ward bounded by Fulton, Cranberry & Hicks Sts of Brooklyn; 3-5, Atlantic, Clinton, Jeralemon & Hicks in the 3rd ward of the city of Brooklyn; 3-6, 3rd ward bounded by Clark, Cranberry, Hicks & Fulton Sts of City of Brooklyn

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.
