Is 1930 Census fully indexed?

Postby Garbo » 03 Feb 2006, 05:02

I was able to find my Sacco family in the 1920 Census, but not the 1930 Census. :? I've checked all the places they lived (IA, PA, NY), different name spellings, etc., but no luck. Anybody have tips on what else I might try? I've been looking at Ancestry.com. Is there a better place to try? All ideas welcome...

Thanks everyone! Here's what I have -- 1920 Census, Appanoose County, Iowa. Head of Household Louis Sacco (35), married to Louise (33)Sacco, children Guilda (9), Pete (6), Fannie (3). All were born in Italy except Fannie, who was born in Iowa. Note that Guilda is really supposed to be Gilda, short for Ermenegilda, and Fannie is short for Franizzi (my grandmother). Little sis Agnes was born in 1921. They subsequently lived in Wilkes-Barre, PA, NYC, and Port Chester, NY. Louis (Luigi) worked as a coal miner and then for the USDA. They were living in Port Chester when he applied for his SS card, but that was after 1930. I'm not sure which place they would have been living in 1930, but my best guess is either Port Chester or NYC, as my grandmother met my grandfather in NYC and they had first child in 1933. I am guessing that by 1930 Gilda and Pete were probably married; I know Fannie (Fran) lived with Gilda and her husband in NYC for a time, but not sure what Gilda's married name was. I haven't been able to find any of them in the 1930 census. My other thought is that they were in Wilkes-Barre and maybe the census wasn't as thorough in the mining camps as elsewhere. Or, maybe they're misspelled in a way I haven't considered yet. I'm sure they didn't just disappear!

Here's link to the 1920 census page (hope this works, like it says I'm a Newbie)

All sleuthing appreciated!

If not let us know

Port Chester was correct.

Louise wife 42
Louis son 17

If this link doesn't work, use Louise LASKO as your search on ancestry

:D
Wow! You are right, this seems like it's probably the right one! A few of the details are off, so maybe a neighbor or one of the kids is the one who gave the answers, but the rest seems spot on.

LASCO! I never would have thought of that in a million years. THANK YOU!

Garbo, you're welcome, as always it's a team effort.

With the information provided, the census search was done by
first name -
I used Louise w/no last name
b 1886
Port Chester, Westchester, NY

Lasko looked pretty likely for a mis-spelling of Sacco...
