Oh good, glad we found “your” family!

Here is a more complete transcription of that 1940 census I posted. Apparently the family had lived in Mason, Custer, Nebraska:

Sauvies Island, Multnomah, Oregon
Living on a farm on Gillihan Loop Road
P. H. Petersen 42, born about 1898 in Nebraska, occupation farming
Lillian Petersen 33, born about 1907 in Nebraska
Stanley Petersen 15, born about 1925 in Nebraska
Hoyd Petersen 12, born about 1928 in Nebraska
Richard Petersen 11, born about 1929 in Nebraska
Ivan Petersen 9, born about 1931 in Nebraska - twins
Iris Ann Petersen 9, born about 1931 in Nebraska - twins
Phyllis Petersen 3, born about 1937 in Nebraska
Residence in 1935: Mason, Custer, Nebraska (a question on the 1940 census)

Next step is to use this information in the 1940 census to search on the Family Search website. You may know stuff that would make your search more successful than if I did it. Here's the link:

Family Search is free and easy to use and I think you'll have fun searching it.

After that phase, and if you still want help, come back to the forum, okay? I'll check back to see what more you've learned and want to learn.

Happy hunting!
