I was ecstatic when I learned Ancestry had recently released the 1940 US Census for Ohio because it meant I could finally find my grandmother... right? Not so much. I spent a good while looking for the family in early April when the unindexed images were first released. I thought they'd be easy since I knew their address and their enumeration district (which was small). I never did find them, and apparently Ancestry's indexers haven't either. If they weren't at 706 Oak St., SW Warren, Trumbull, Ohio then I don't have a clue where they were in 1940. It is looking like they just weren't enumerated (or were enumerated elsewhere for whatever reason).
I thought MAYBE they were enumerated with my great-grandfather's brother, Nicola, and his family (also in Warren). Alas, no. But at least Nicola's family was enumerated:
And looky there, Nicola (enumerated as 'Nicholas') was one of the chosen few asked supplemental questions!
No big discoveries there, I already knew his parents (and he) were from Italy and thereby deduced that the language of his childhood was Italian. I did not, however, know that he had a social security number. If SS-5s weren't so expensive I might order his (I already have his brother's/my great-grandfather's).
Thanks, Ancestry! It isn't my grandmother and her family, but it is the next best thing.
