In the 1930 census, under the place of birth column, two of my ancestors (who apparently lived on the same block - Max and Michael Weissman) put that they were born in Austria-Hungary. Written on top of it appears to be an abbreviation of some kind - E.N.S. I have searched the internet quite extensively to figure out what that could mean but still no luck. I stumbled upon an old thread from feb 2003 on RootsWeb.com but in the end they never seem to figure it out either.

...i've attempted to research this myself and i believe it may stand for European, No State...a situation of post WWII when states were in a jumble...

I too was curious and found ENS is/was a region on Austria-Hungary. There is/was an Upper and Lower ENS Region. See link below to a book titled:

The Penny Cyclopaedia of the Society for Diffusion of Useful Knowledge by George Long.
Google: What is Upper ENS-as shown on my relatives' census.
