Lorusso Family in Worcester, Massachusetts

In 1940, the Lorusso family (grandparents and great grandparents of my son) were residing in Ward 4 of the city of Worcester at 767 Franklin Street. Nicholas and Antoinette Lorusso had resided in Ward 4 at 615 Franklin Street in 1930. Because the house numbers were different, I was not able to use the simple enumeration conversion from 1930 to 1940 provided by SteveMorse.org. After studying and searching several enumeration districts, I finally found the families for whom I was looking. The were enumerated on 2 April 1940 by Arthur F. White, enumeration in ED 23-86.[1] In 1935 all of these families were residing in Worcester.
