The Journey To Knickerbocker

The "old man draft" of 1942 has enabled me to use a back door to figure out the pre-KV addresses of some of our parents and grandparents. Currently the 1930 census is the latest one available to the public and often there are numerous spelling errors. The Karney case is even more difficult because of a name change that took place at some point and no one knows what it was changed from. The story that was shared with me was that building trade jobs that Morris sought were often denied due to anti-semitism. This bears out as Morris lists his vocation in construction. Interesting is a possible work location in Baltimore.
