    According to the 1930 census, Mildred’s parents were German. The genealogy lists her surname as “Riha”, although it also lists her own birthplace as Germany, and the birth year is off by three years (1893 on censuses). I don’t know how Geneanet determined her surname, but if they’re right, she might have been of Czech descent (Říha is Czech).

    Could anyone try to solve this? Maybe by finding Mildred on an earlier census?
