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.
