Roizen family history footnote: entering the U.S.

7501 Leescott Ave., Van Nuys, California (today)

For the record, we entered the U.S. to stay on July 11, 1951 at Seattle.  This means, incidentally, that Dad was 27 years old when he made that move, Mom was 31, I was 7, and Peter was 4.  The family was granted U.S. citizenship in 1956, so Dad must have applied for citizenship very soon after arriving, doubtless in order to ease getting jobs.  Our first residence address in the U.S. – a very short one, presumably just an interim home — was 1948½ New England, Los Angeles, CA; our second was 7501 Leescott Ave., Van Nuys, CA.
