The Birth of Adam Skowronski

I have been searching for years for the Birth Record for Adam Skowronski, the first child of Alexander Skowronski and Frances Dymek, and today I found the record on the website of the New England Historic Genealogical Society.  Two of the daughters of Alexander Skowronski and Frances Dymek married two of my paternal uncles.  Adam was born in Gardner, Worcester County, Massachusetts in 1906.  Adam is listed on line 393 of page 321 in volume 560 of the 1906 Birth Registrations for Worcester.

Click on the link for a PDF copy of the Birth Record for Adam Skowronski.  The record states that:

  • The Birth Record for Adam Skuronsky is recorded in Volume 560, Page 321, Line Number 393 in the Birth Records for the Town of Gardner for the year 1906
  • Adam Skuronsky, a white male, was born on 24 Dec 1906 in Gardner, Massachusetts
  • Adam’s father was Alexander Skuronsky, a laborer born in Russia
  • Adam’s mother was Francis Dmak, born in Russia
  • Adam’s birth was recorded in January 1907

As I’ve seen in other Massachusetts Birth Records from this time period, the names are misspelled in this record.  The misspellings and the correct spellings are:

  • Adam Skuronsky = Adam Skowronski
  • Alexander Skuronsky = Alexander Skowronski
  • Francis Dmak = Frances Dymek

This Birth Record fills one of the gaping holes in my knowledge of the family of Alexander Skowronski and Frances Dymek.

On a related note, the New England Historic Genealogical Society has announced that they have received the microfilms for Massachusetts Vital Records for the period 1911-1915.
