Subject: Buffalo, NY 1910 census

Hello Beth,
I am also trying to locate people in Buffalo in the 1910 census: PAPKE
and STYN at 8 Grimes Street. I try to identify which ward of the city has
the street address for the family from the 1900 census, then I try to find
which enumeration district covers that ward. Here is a list of the ward
descriptions. The ward descriptions can be used to identify a good starting
point to start searching the 1910 census of Buffalo. If you're lucky you
will find them in the first ward you search.

Please let me know if you have received any other useful tips. I would like
to get old street maps of Buffalo with or without the ward boundaries marked
but haven't found a place to get them.
