    The 1910 census for East Aurora village, NY, shows that William J. Switzer is a baker with "own shop". Perhaps descendants of Genevieve Switzer-Newman know more about this event?

      [Anna L. Vollick-Switzer stated in the 1900 census that she and William J. Switzer had been married three years. The transcription of the "Gulielmum" names may not be so strange considering that the French language version of "William" is "Guillaume"]
