Dear Ms. Shuman,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the Population Schedules for the 1860 Census, the Population Schedules for the 1870 Census, the Population Schedules for the 1880 Census, the Population Schedules for the 1890 Census; the Population Schedules for the 1900 Census, and the Population Schedules for the 1910 Census, the Population Schedules for the 1920 Census, the Population Schedules for the 1930 Census, and the Population Schedules for the 1940 Census in the Records of the Bureau of the Census (Record Group 29) that may contain information about Chaim Gruschka. The 1940 Census schedules are digitized and available using the Catalog.

We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
Thank you! Chaim Gruschka may have become Chaim Aroshkin who was born in 1852. He may have been the father of Pauline (Pahlin, Perl) Arashken who married Harry Lemlek September 19,1921 in New York. Perl Gruschka came to the United States in 1910 to the residence of her father Chaim in New York. I can't find more on Perl but then I found Pauline who (I can't find before 1921 when she got married to Harry Lemlek. My father was Irving I Grushky born in Michigan to Alex and Rose Grushky in 1920. Alex was the son of Chaim. I think Perl and Pauline were the same person-I am trying to prove this to the Lemlek family. Thank you again
