Treasure Chest Thursday - Post 181: 1930 U.S. Census for Henry Carringer Household in San Diego, California

It's Treasure Chest Thursday - time to look in my digital image files to see what treasures I can find for my family history and genealogy musings.

The treasure today is the 1930 United States Census record for my Carringer great-grandparents and their family in San Diego, San Diego County, California: 

The entry for the Henry A,. Carringer household:

The extracted information for the household, residing at 2115 30th Street in San Diego, San Diego County, California, taken 2 April 1930, is:

*  Henry A. Carringer -- head, owns home, worth $5,000, owns radio set, male, white, age 76, married, first at age 34, able to read/write, born Pennsylvania, parents born Pennsylvania/Pennsylvania, able to speak English, an aviation mechanician, works at Army Air Services, employed, not a veteran
*  Della A. Carringer -- wife, female, white, age 67, married, first at age 25, able to read/write, born Wisconsin, parents born New York/New York, able to speak English,  no occupation
*  Abbie A. Smith -- mother-in-law, female, white, age 85, widowed, able to read/write, born New York, parents born England/New York, able to speak English, no occupation.

The source citation for this census image is:

1930 United States Federal Census, San Diego County, California, Population Schedule, San Diego city; ED 116, Sheet 1A, dwelling #3, family #5, Henry A. Carringer household; digital image, ( : accessed 17 December 2007); citing National Archives Microfilm Publication T626, Roll 192.

I don't see any errors in this enumeration.  The relationships are correct, ages are correct for the enumeration date, the birthplaces and parents birthplaces are correct, and the occupation information for Henry is consistent with what I know from other resources.
