Dear Margarete:

It's taken me quite a while to research Joseph Weig b.1803
and his wife Anna Dobmeier b.1804. I found out why I cannot find the family in the census until 1870. Whoever transcribed the censuses didn't know there were two places named Buffalo, New York back then. One was the City of Buffalo.The other was the Town of Buffalo. The Town is now called Black Rock, New York. So, they didn't bother to transcribe the entire censuses!While I still cannot find the family in the ships manifests I believe it's the second Joseph Weig that I'm looking for.They had 6 children born in Bavaria and then another child who was born in Buffalo, NY 15 Sep 1851. The City directory shows Joseph Weig was here in 1850. Unfortunately city directories only list the head of household. Many thanks for your assistance.
Regards,
Chris M.
