1940 Census, Lorenzo Romano Passaic NJ

Postby Romano1970 » 08 Jul 2012, 21:47

Hello all, It has been a long time. I am trying to find my Grandfather Lorenzo Romano on the 1940 Census. He lived on Oak Street in Passaic , NJ (in Passaic County) if anyone can offer assistance it would be appreciated. On the 1920 Census it showed him in the second ward, Supervisors district 7. On the 1930 census it is clouded on the copy I have although it still shows him on Oak street.

Thanks in advance.

Hello Tessa, thank you very much.

When I took a trip back to NJ, I went to this actual address hoping to find some shread of evidence that the building may have still existed but unfortunately it was an empty lot. I still took pictures though.

Funny thing, On that same trip I went to pick up my grandparents wedding certificate and death records at the municiple office (for the death records) and the address was 330 pssaic street. This was the exact address that my grandfather stayed at when he first came to america based off of his ships manifest. I thought that was a pretty cool thing to be standing in the same area that my grandfather did when he was a young man.

More than likely it was the address of the ticket agent (a good possibility since it is now a municipal building). Many immigrants listed the address of the ticket agent when indicating a destination. You might want to go back to the manifest and look to see if several passengers list that same address in NJ.

I understand your disappointment about finding an empty lot... I had the same experience :-(
You might want to check with the City of Passaic, or the State of New Jersey about possible tax photos. In NY they took photo images for tax purposes in the early part of the 20th century.

Actually, they did. On the ships manifest there were 6 people going to the same location including my grandfather.
Ship Manifest SS Palermo Sailing from Palermo, 5 Setembre 1913, Arriving at port of Boston, September 23, 1913.

Two Papalias, Line lines 8 and 16, Two Lo mattinas, Lines 17 and 27 and one Purazzo line 24. Also my grandfather Romano Line 28.

One thng that intrigues me is the journey from Boston to NJ.

Most likely done by rail. Here is some interesting information about the South Street Station [Boston] in the early part of the century.
