My first find in the 1940 Census

First up on my list for people to find in the 1940 census was my grandma Eleanore Bergman.

I had an address for my great-grandparents in Seattle in 1935 and went from there.  It was much easier than I thought it would be to use the enumeration district calculator and start searching in their neighborhood.

Lars Julius and Eugenia Bergman (Eleanore’s parents) were divorced in 1937.  I wasn’t sure who I was going to find at the address – if anyone.

I was pleasantly surprised to find that my relatives were still in the same house.

My great-grandmother Eugenia, my great-uncle Walden, and my grandma Eleanore (17) living in the same home.  I searched the rest of the neighborhood, but didn’t find Lars.  I’m not sure where he moved to, but I know that he stayed in Seattle.  I think I’m going to have to wait until the index comes out to find him, because I’m not going to search the entire city of Seattle page by page. 🙂
