Census Saturday - 1930 U.S. Federal Census - Rienerth Household

My favorite records since I started my pursuits in genealogy have been census records. It is exciting to see your ancestors' names in these records and it is like looking at a snapshot of their lives with all the information it includes. I am starting this series on my blog to keep a record my family's census entries.

The 1930 United States Federal Cense finds my great-grandparents George and Regina (Konnerth) Rienerth living in Boardman Township in Mahoning County, Ohio. They had all of their children living with them at this point and were most likely living in the house that my great-grandfather built himself. He was listed as being a self-employed brick layer. His oldest daughter, Hilda, was still living at home and working as a teacher at a grade school. His oldest son was also working as a laborer at the steel mill. His youngest 3 boys (including my grandfather) were attending school.
