Click on the link for a PDF copy of the Marriage Record for George Card and Victoria Izbicki – 1935.  The record shows that:

  • George W. Card was a 27 year old white man born in New Haven, Connecticut and residing in Worcester, Massachusetts
  • He was a greaser, and his parents were Henry R. Card and Mary E. Connors
  • Victoria Izbicki was a 26 year old white woman born and residing in Worcester, Massachusetts

  • The wedding was solemnized on 07 Sep 1935 in St. Mary’s Church in Worcester by B. A. Bojanowski, a priest residing at 15 Richland St., Worcester, Massachusetts

  • The certificate also notes the page number 391 in the Volume of the Marriage Records for Worcester in 1935

In this record, Victoria’s father is listed as William D. Izbicki, rather than Bolesław Izbicki.  Bolesław often used the alias William after he arrived in the United States.  This is the first record in which I’ve seen a middle initial for him, though.  I don’t know what the D. stands for.

The marriage took place in the Roman Catholic St. Mary’s Church in Worcester.  St. Mary’s Church is known today as Our Lady of Częstochowa Church.  At the time George W. Card and Victoria Izbicki were married, the congregation of St. Mary’s Church was mostly Polish, and is still largely Polish today.  Each Sunday, two masses at Our Lady of Chęstochowa Church are still celebrated in the Polish language.

One Response to The Marriage of George W. Card and Victoria Izbicki

  1. Deacon Thomas A. Lewis says:

    Dear Steve:

    I very much enjoyed your genealogy on the Izbicki family. My grandfather, Alexsander Izbicki came to Norwich, CT from Nowa Wies in 1895. His father was Wojciech Izbicki and his mother was Teofila Gwiazdowska. My grandmother’s name was Josephine Danilowicz and she came from Sobolewo (Suwalki). As a young child, I can remember going to Worcester when my grandfather visited relatives there.
    I have been corresponding with a Tadeusz Izbicki in Warsaw who has done considerable research on the Izbicki family in the Wigry area. I believe he has relatives living in Worcester.
    I have never been able to obtain the birth or baptismal records for my grandfather. I believe he was born around 1871.
    I am a permanent deacon assigned to Saint Joseph Parish (Polish) in Norwich, CT.

    Thanks for all the information on your web site,

    Deacon Tom
