The Marriage of John Baranauckas and Louisa Zideckas

Yesterday I posted the Marriage Certificate for Leo Izbicki and Anna L. Baronisky.  Anna’s parents were listed as John Baronisky and Louise Zadeckas.  The marriage record for Anna’s parents reveals some more information about the family surname and origins.

The Marriage Record for John Baranauckas and Louisa Zideckas

Click on the link for a PDF copy of the Marriage Record for John Baranauckas and Louisa Zideckas.  The record shows that:

  • The marriage was recorded in Volume 556, Page 479, Number 619 of the marriage registers for the city of Worcester, Massachusetts in 1905
  • John Baranauckas, age 24, residing in Worcester and working as an operative, was born in Russia-Lithuania, the son of George Baranauckas and Catharine [Denulevicz?]
  • Louisa Zideckas, age 20, residing in Worcester and working as an operative, was born in Russia-Lithuania, the daughter of Joseph Zideckas and Eva Dambrauckas
  • The couple was married on 19 Jun 1905 by Joseph Jaksztys, a Clergyman from Worcester
  • This was the first marriage for each of them
  • The marriage was recorded on 19 Jun 1905

This record helps to confirm the hypothesis that Anna L. Baronisky’s surname was changed at some time and that her parents were from Lithuania.

In the 1905 Worcester City Directory, Joseph Jaksztys is listed as the pastor of St. Casimir Church, residing at 22 Waverly St., Worcester, so it is likely that John Baranauckas and Louisa Zideckas were married in St. Casimir’s.  St. Casimir’s Church was a Roman Catholic Church serving a predominantly Lithuanian congregation.  The church itself is located at 41 Providence Street at the intersection of Waverly Street.
