  • Notes 
    •        In the 1920 U. S. Federal Census, (Julianna) Bertha Menge West is a 26 year old, white, married female. She is married to August West. Bertha was born in Russia of parents who were also born in Russia. She immigrated to the United States in 1904 and is considered a resident alien. She reads, writes, and speaks English, although her native language is English. Bertha has no employ outside the home. She lives with her husband, August, and two children, Frank and Doris. The family lives in Binghamton Township, Barnes County, North Dakota. [WA 07.]
             In the 1925 North Dakota State Census, Bertha Menge West is a 27 year old, female who is not a U. S. Citizen. Bertha lives with her husband August and seven children: Frank, Doris, Alice, Florence, Lyle, Ross, and Rusty, Ross' twin brother. The family lives in Greene Township, Ransom County, North Dakota. Further information is not provided. [WA 09.]
             In the 1930 U. S. Federal Census, Julianna Bertha Menge West is given as a 34 year old, white married female. According to this record she was born in Germany of German parents and speaks German. That information contradicts the information of the 1920 Census, which states that she was born in Russia of Russian parents and speaks Russian. We do not know why the information is different. According to this census record, Bertha arrived in the United States in 1910 and is classified as an alien. She reads, writes, and speaks English. She has no employ outside the home. Bertha lives with her husband, August, and seven children: Frank, Doris, Alice, Florence, Lyle, Ross and Rusty, Ross' twin. The family lives in Dilworth, Clay County, Minnesota. [WA 08.]
             In the 1940 U. S. Federal Census, Julianna Bertha Menge West, known as Bertha, is a 44 year old, white married female. She is married to August West. She is not enrolled in college and has received a third grade education equivalent. She lists Germany as country of birth, but we know that the country of birth is actually Russia and that Russian is at least one of the languages in which she competent. It would be interesting to find out why Germany continues to be listed as the country of birth when it is not. Bertha lists her employment as that of the home and housework, which she does 52 weeks in the year for no salary. However, she indicates that she has more than $50 of income outside any wages or salary that she might earn. Bertha lives with her husband, August and seven children: Frank, Lyle, Ross, Rusty, Thomas, Kenneth, and Florence. The Blakeway family of Doris West Blakeway, Virgil J. Blakeway, and their daughter, Virginia also live with the August West family. The families live in Riverton Township, Clay County, Minnesota. [WA 10.]

    Born:
    • Romansdorf is near Kiev in Ukraine, no longer in Russia. I cannot verify the date of birth for Bertha Menge, nor the name Julianne. It comes from Ancestry.com family tree 78137016, but it seems accurate. Her normal name seems to be either Bertha or Berthe.
