Thank you, I had never even heard of the enumerator. So this is the pertinent information for the year of the census
"If a person says he was born in Austria, Germany, Russia, or Turkey as they were before the war, enter the name of the Province (State or Region) in which born, as Alsace-Lorraine, Bohemia, Bavaria, German or Russian Poland, Croatia, Galicia, Finland, Slovakland, etc.; or the name of the city or town in which born, as Berlin, Prague, Vienna, etc."
So is this pretty much explaining why Lithuania was crossed out with Russia put above it?
