In 1920, Emil was a married, white male, 37 years old.
He rented his residence at 10 Division Street in Waterbury, New Haven County, Connecticut.
His residence was in the 1st Ward.
He and his parents were born in Poland, and his mother tongue was Polish.
He immigrated in 1905, and was an alien.
He was able to read and write, and was able to speak English; he did not attend school.
He worked as a machinist in a factory at the time of the census.
Although Emil was married at this time and had two or three children, his wife and children are not listed with him on this page.
UPDATE 22 May 2008: Emil’s wife and children are listed on page 5-B of the same enumeration district and are cross-referenced back to Emil’s name on page 2-B.
From the information on the 1920 US Federal Census, I can conclude that Emil was born in about 1882-1883. His World War I Draft Registration Card stated that he was born 22 Jun 1883 and his World War II Draft Registration Card stated that he was born 16 Jul 1883.
I don’t yet know if or how Emil is related to me, but his surname and place of birth suggest that he and I are distant cousins.
