I'm trying to locate my great grandparents in the 1910 U.S. Census as well as the 1915 NY Census. I've had no luck so far. I even searched the entire Enumeration District for the street they lived on when they were married in 1912, but no luck there either.
Found his WWI registration Card and Naturalization index...
DOB 11 January 1889 Address - 77 Thompson St. Occupation - tailor
Are these correct?
Could this be the family in 1920 Census? Aniello listed as "Louis?" Address is at 77 Thompson St.

Here are a few possibilities as to why you can not find them in the censuses...
~ the surname is grossly misspelled by the census-taker, and sometimes by the transcriber ~ families were "missed" (not at home when the census taker came or returned to take the information) ~ they actually lived out of the state/area for a short while- or with someone else and they are listed under the "head of household's" surname. ~ the husband was working somewhere else, and the wife/child were living with relatives.
If you know of other relatives with whom they might be living, you might do a search on those names.
While searching I found a female, A. Fernandez/s, who was a matron (age about 23 I think) at J. W. Smith Home in Brooklyn, in the New York State 1915 Census. I will have to see if I can relocate that record.
