    Notes 
    • Nowogrod PSA, Lomza Gubernia, Bialystok Province:
      Birth Record:
      Krimkiewicz, Rubin Wolf
      Birth year: 1888
      Father: Joszk
      Mother: Leja Wygoda

      Birth year as per wedding license would be 1890; per 1920 census, 1889; per 1930 census, 1890. It appears as though William settled on “April 15, 1888” as his birthdate, but it is highly likely that this is not a correct “official” date, given the disparity with his birth year among these various records.
