Enumerators’ Hall of Fame
Hats off to Mr. George McKechnie.
(Did I read his last name right? I want to make sure his plaque is engraved correctly.)
He went the extra mile and recorded birth days as well as months and years in the 1900 Brooklyn census.
I hereby nominate him for acceptance into the Enumerators’ Hall of Fame.
Thank you, Mr. McKechnie!
