I’m not related to any member of this family.

1930 is the last available census at this time.

1940 census will be released on April 2, 2012. It will take several months to transcribe all the states.



RE - Adelaie
NEED the maiden name.
NEED her DOB + birthplace
WHAT is her race???
WHO did she marry?? NEED his 1st name + DOB + birthplace

In which census did you find her & WHERE - state, county???

Adelaie married to Ignace Jones (1884-?) Louisiana 
She was Born about 1881 in Louisiana
They Lived in St. John parish, Louisiana 
Her daughter Julia Jones is my paternal grandmother
Race is black 
I found the 1920 census but that's it. I have no clue when she died. 
I'm afraid her name may have been spelled multiple ways, which adds to the frustration of finding more about her.

Yep, that's the family census I found. We're you able to find anything earlier or do you know of a way to find her maiden name?

Look for a marriage record.

Order her death cert. Parents names should be listed.
