    NOTES FROM MR. JOHN NOVAK:

    Several corrections to that census record. [1920]. My grandfather was born in 1912, and my Aunt Helen was born in 1910. My sense is that the census was started as early as 1918, and that is why the ages seem off because the age distribution of the children was all correct. My grandmother's name was Paulina, and I cannot confirm from anybody in my family that she was ever called Polly. Paulina did have two brothers that lived with them on and off, but the names were John and George. Neither of the uncles ever married to our knowledge. Paulina's maiden name is way off, but it is not Kaudesky or Kanowski. I believe I have the correct name at home.
