    OT: we may never, ever see the 1960. Apparently it was stored on magnetic tape reels -- and zero functioning readers exist today. This may be a myth but has the ring of truth.



    I remember that naturalization record! Not the Eifee surname, though.

He was also listed as 5'0" at the age of 16 which does fit with Annasmon's description of him being short. I think that was the only possibility we found as far as immigration records went. This person did have a stepsister in Boston and a brother who came to the US later.

    The brother who came to the US later, has he been researched? I wonder if there is any info to see if that family resembles our GB.

    Thank you, Newfiedee. There is a certain resemblance, but I think we probably need more information on this person to assume he's a person of interest, especially since we have fairly strong evidence that the man calling himself George Brody was probably in the San Francisco Bay Area before the man in your photographs disappeared.

    Has anyone with an ancestry membership researched GB in the 1950 Census Substitute? I am not a member so can't search it effectively. Anyone want to dig into researching this avenue?

    I think it will be released in 2020, isn't it 70 years?

    There is something called a 'substitute census' for 1950 which was released several years ago. I found it last night and had no idea it existed. I don't recall any mention of it here at WS/this thread so I don't know if GB has been researched.

    The link I added in my previous post should be directly to this 1950 substitute census.

    I just looked at the census substitute link and it appears to be a compilation of US city directories. There are some GBs in Oakland/Alameda in there. I can't see the detailed results not being a member. Maybe a look at those results might uncover something new about GB.

    Sorry to say - this is not the same person. Not in the least bit. The cranial architecture and structure is completely different, particularly in the mandibular and maxillary regions.

    Thanks
    so much for your expert opinion. I knew the face was different, but I couldn't say just why.
