Michael John Neill's weekly genealogy how-to column.
Hi Michael,I enjoyed the detective work in Issue 20.With the 1900 US census showing children born in Germany right up to Feb 1879, I didn't think you had any chance of finding the Cintura family in the 1880 US census. That is real genealogical luck -- the opposite of finding that your family is covered by an ink stain on the census sheet. I am confused by J. Cintura's wife being named Theresa in the 1900 census, whereas everywhere else she is named Petreja or something like that. Is Theresa an americanization of Petreja? Or "Theresa" an editing error?BobG
