Check the New York State Census, 1905

The New York State Census, 1905 came out earlier this year. Finding a person in 1905 gives you an opportunity to see what the family looked like between 1900 and 1910. In the example below, the Krout family from Austria had two new children, Charlie and Tristan, who were born after 1900 and before 1905 who were US citizens.

Have you looked at the census to figure out when Wilhelm Daehne came from Germany or was naturalized? We can then find out where he came from in Germany.

Hi Gabrielle!


Let's have you look for Wilhelm Daehne here first: New York State, Birth Index, 1881-1942 https://www.ancestry.com/search/collections/61667/


Also, was he in this collection? When did he pass? He could be found in death records. The date will tell me what database to look.
