1940 United States Federal Census

A few things to note about the 1940 census details.

  • August Kaiser was not born in Russia; he was born in Argentina. The family lived there briefly before going back to Russia for several years. In 1911 they immigrated successfully to the United States. Aug must have considered it too complicated to tell people he was born in Argentina, so he simply told them he was born in Russia, where his parents and siblings were born.
  • Victor Grantz = Victor Glanz
  • Victor Glanz was Ella Glanz's younger brother. The census implies she is his mother by listing him as August Kaiser's step-son. Ella was only six years older than him, making it impossible for her to be Victor's mother. She was his sister, making August his brother-in-law.
