  • Tom posed a research conundrum he has encountered in researching his family in the 1910 U.S. Federal census in Cranesville, Erie County, Pennsylvania. He cannot locate the enumeration district (ED) for that place. The Guys spent some time replicating his research and delving into EDs in that area and, using people living in Cranesville in 1920 and locating them at the same residences in 1910, narrowed the ED down to #66. We've asked for specific names and will recheck those as well. Listener suggestions are also very welcome.
