Census Search by address?
Posted by: Gail Trecosta (ID *****2392) Date: October 11, 2011 at 07:28:23

I am trying to find my ancesters in a census. Their name has many spelling variations and is not uncommon; but, I do have a two different addresses on Wythe Avenue in Brooklyn. If I could find a Donohue, Donoghue, O'Donohue, O'Donoghue (etc.) on Wythe Avenue, I might be onto something.

Is there a way to search by a person's name AND address?

At the time of death in 1909 Hannah O'Donohue (name as spelled on death certificate); widowed at the time lived on Wythe Avenue. She was widowed; her husband was Jeremiah O'Donohue, who died 1897. Also, at the time of death in 1918, Kate Donohue, (single) whom I believe to be one of Hannah & Jeremiah's children lived on Wythe Avenue (different address than mother). Other children of Hannah & Jeremiah that I am certain of are Hannah and Julia.

Thanks for any advice.
