Name of the street that the Barkin family lived on, as noted along the left margin of the sheet between lines 37 and 46. Clearly they lived at #3 on that street, which I want to find on a map and get the latitude and longitude for.

10/22/2014 7:59 PM The street name starts with an "S" (compare with Schwartz on line 3). Then an "a" and possibly a "p". But a quick check on Google Maps shows - right next to Paris Street in Boston today - a Sharon Court. I wonder if that might be it.

Otherwise, here's a 1912 map of East Boston:

Good luck!
10/22/2014 8:09 PM The street name is Saxon Court. In the 1910 Boston directory Abraham is listed as living at # 6 Saxon Court.
10/23/2014 2:00 AM Hello Robert,

It appears to be Saxon Court to me too.....Jo
10/23/2014 2:14 AM The streetname written clearly is "Paris Street".

See:
