Example

In the newly added 1905 Kansas State Census, we can see a record for Dwight Eisenhower. Born David Dwight Eisenhower and nicknamed “Ike,” he was an American military officer and statesman who served as the 34th president of the United States from 1953 to 1961. During World War II, Eisenhower was the Supreme Commander of the Allied Expeditionary Force in Europe. He planned and supervised pivotal operations, including the invasion of Normandy in 1944, and achieved the 5-star rank as General of the Army.

In this 1905 record, we see that Dwight Eisenhower was just 14 years old, providing a snapshot of his early life in Abilene, Kansas, before he became a key figure in world history. The household members listed include his parents, D. J. Eisenhower and Ida Eisenhower, along with his siblings A. Eisenhower, Edgar Eisenhower, Roy Eisenhower, Earl Eisenhower, and Milton Eisenhower.
