Re: [Genealogy Research Club] Need help with Immigration
Okay, I checked the 1920 Population Census for
Illinois, Cook County, Chicago, 33rd Precinct and
found two FISHER families living next door to each
Fisher, Frank, 33, Born in Austria
Josephine (Wife), 27, Born in Austria
Frank (Son), 7 1/2, Born in New York
Josephine (Dau), 5 1/2, Born in Cleveland Ohio
Rudie (Son), 1, Born in Chicago, Illinois
Fisher, Albert, 37, Born in Austria
Mary, (Wife), 37, Born in Austria
Helen (Dau), 11 1/2, Born in New York
Tillie (Dau), 11 1/2, Born in New York
Louise (Dau), 10, Born in New York
Emily (Dau), 8, Born in New York
May(?) (Dau), 4, Born in Illinois
The record indicates that all four adults were born in
Austria as were their parents. I believe that Albert
and Mary are indicated as having been married in
Austria. Albert and Frank perhaps are brothers.
Judging from the ages and birthplaces of the children,
Albert and Mary lived in New York for approximately 7
years before moving to Illinois and had lived in
Illinois for the last 4 years.
I can search other Census records, but I think you are
going to have to get information from Austria about
Albert's early life events and his parents.
Let me know if I can do anything else to help you.
