A gem from the 1950 Census

Among the records in the MyHeritage 1950 census image collection, you can find actor Christopher Walken appearing in a U.S. census for the first time. Born Ronald Walken, Christopher was 7-years-old at the time of the 1950 U.S. census. The census lists his father, Paul, as 44-years-old and mother, Rosalie, as 44-years-old. Paul was born in Germany and Rosalie was born in Scotland. They were owners of a retail bakery. Christopher was the middle child, with an older brother named Kenneth who was 11-years-old and a younger brother named Glenn who was 4-years-old at the time of the census.
