1940 Census are out!

It has been very frustrating for me to find 1940 census reports. I first started searching when none of the census reports were indexed. Now only DE, DC, ME, NV, and NY are currently searchable by name (indexed). I’ve been able to make some progress.

Nathan Samuel Schiff was listed as single and head of household. Living with him at that time was his mother, Rose (Steuer), his sister Sue (Sadie) and her husband Joseph Cohen and their two sons, Elliott and Morton and a maid.  They lived on 112 Lafayette Place, Hempstead, Nassau, New York.  Nathan owned his home and had his own medical practice.

Minnie Steuer Levine and her son Jerome are still living with her parents, as well as her sister Lillian (Steuer), in 1940. Aaron L Steuer, Virginia and their children Max D, James Clark and Lynn were living at 888 Park Avenue (New York City) in 1940. Aaron also had a nurse, cook, laundress and waitress living in their household.

Bertha (Steuer) and Abraham J Unger and their two boys, Leonard (23) and Irving (14) were living with them in New York City (E 15th Street) in 1940. Abe was a dentist, in his own office and Leonard was an attorney.  Abraham’s father, Solomon, and his grandparents were all born in Koschow, Slovakia. We all know the borders changed quite a bit and Slovakia was a part of Hungary.
Henry Laber, his wife Jean (Perlman) and their son William were living with her parents and brother in the Bronx in 1940.
