I previously found the 1920 U.S. Federal Census for the household of Bolesław Izbicki. The 1910 Census shows the same family with a slightly different family structure.

Click on the link for a PDF copy of the 1910 U.S. Federal Census for the Bolesław Izbicki Household. The Census Record states that:
- Boleslaw Isbicski, the head of the household, was enumerated with his family in a rented house at 11 Meade Street, Worcester, Worcester Co., Massachusetts in Supervisor’s District No. 119, Enumeration District No. 1883, Sheet No. 7A, Lines 23-32 in part of Precinct 3, Worcester City Ward 5, in Dwelling No. 25, and as Family No. 77
- The enumeration was made on 19 Apr 1910 by William Connell
- Boleslaw Isbicski, the head of household, was a married white male, age 36, immigrated in 1892, naturalized, employed as a Laborer in the City Works
- Victoria, his wife, was a married white female, age 39, immigrated in 1899, naturalization status not indicated, not employed, mother of 5 children, all still living
- John N., his son, was a single white male, age 8
- Boleslaw, his son, was a single white male, age 7
- Leo, his son, was a single white male, age 5
- Wladyslaw, his son, was a single white male, age 3
- Victoria, his daughter, was a single white female, age 1-7/12
- Kayetan Isbicski, his brother, was a single white male, age 23, immigrated in 1905, an alien, employed as a Laborer in a Tannery
- John Kruzynski, a boarder, was a single white male, age 21, immigrated in 1909, an alien, employed as a Laborer in a Cotton Mill
- Stephen Kruzynski, a boarder, was a single white male, age 25, immigrated in 1909, an alien, employed as a Laborer in a Cotton Mill
- Boleslaw, his wife Victoria, his brother John, and boarders John and Stephen Kruzynski, were all from Russia and spoke Polish
- The children of Boleslaw and Victoria were all born in Massachusetts
- Boleslaw could speak English, but the other adults could not
- Sons John N, Boleslaw, and Leo were all attending school
- Boleslaw and Victoria were married for 9 years and the marriage was the first for each
This record is of particular interest for two reasons: the record shows Boleslaw’s brother Kajetan living with the family, and the record shows two boarders living with the family. In the early part of the 20th Century, Polish immigrants in Worcester often took in boarders in order to make ends meet.
