THE 1930’s (Side A-2)

After reading the census information for the Harris family in 1930 I found that the composition for the family hasn’t changed too much, instead of one of Benson’s brother living with them there were two brothers there. I wish I knew the size of their house… Im sure it was pretty tight. ( I know who to ask about that though and I’ll be making that phone call later on today)

Clues to Help Me PRESS BACK: The major thing that I noticed is that there is an 18 year old Sareh (Sarah) in the house, listed as a daughter. She’s not in the home in 1940 but could she be the missing parent to Kenneth Jordan?

Name changes, Maryetta has been changed to Mary. When I search for her before being married or other documents this may be something that I’ll have to keep in mind.

What I want to know….

Is there a place that I can go to view house dimensions or lot dimensions?
Where is the exact address on the census?
