One Quick Handwriting Transcription Challenge Every Day-for the genealogist in you
I have a friend with the last name Kritikos. She lives in CA. Interesting!
I agree with Connie,Menelaos Kritikos !!But then I cheated and found it interesting that there was a Verikos [a Roomer] in the same house on the 1930 census. As yet I haven't found the link to your Peter though.
I make it 4. Menelaos Kritikos.
Using other records is being resourceful Tom :-).I'll have to take a look at the 1930 census. Peter Verikios is my wife's step-great-grandfather and what I know about his family is limited, but he probably was a roomer in 1930 and also had Verikios relatives in Chicago.
Agreed--Menelaos Kritikos. Looking up the name in a source would take all of the fun out of deciphering the name for me. I never look at others' comments prior to my deciding what I believe the name is.
I really must defend myself here.I can assure Kay that the only resource I use in my transcription is to increase the magnification at times--not that it is always helpful.My reference to the 1930 census was made after I had decided the name was Menelaos Kritikos [which was relatively easy] and I was curious as to who he was.For Michael -- Menelaos was at No. 413 East 115th St. along with Verikios [the roomer] and others. Your Peter was at 221 East 115th St. along with his Family -- in Chicago of course.
Michael, your family is in the Roseland/Kensington area? Are you familiar with the FB site, Roseland Roundtable? LOTS of good photos, mostly old but many current ones, especially of landmarks and churches.
