Knowledge of the family structure is always important. By 1930 Lucille Ball was living with her mother Desiree and her stepfather Edward Peterson. While Ball was enumerated under her birth name, some individuals are occasionally listed in the census with the same surname as their step-father. You can search for your family member in 1930, but make certain you have their correct last name and are aware of any changes in their family structure.
