How did I find?

I had found George Herman or Herman George Weisleder in the 1910 and 1930 Census, why couldn’t I find him in the 1920 Census. How do you narrow down a census for a large city. I had found him listed in a Buffalo City Directory living at 304 Sycamore. Now Buffalo has a lot of Districts. I went to Google Earth and located 304 Sycamore, and the streets surrounding it. Then as most of the enumeration districts listed the streets bounding the district, I was able to zero in on the enumeration district that 304 Sycamore would be listed. When I found the entry, the last name was Weisler, so it was not coming up in searches for Weisleader. It is amazing what can be found using various sources.

It also shows that he is widowed with 2 children, Lois and Kenneth.
