The image above is a composite image from the ledger, cropped to emphasize the information for this child.  Click on the link for a PDF copy of the birth record of John (Julius) Kupstas.  The ledger states:

  • John Kupstas’s birth is recorded as Vol. 576, Page 516, No. 2037 in the ledger for the city of Worcester,
  • His name was recorded as Julius Kupstas, a male child born in Worcester
  • He was born on 17 December 1908 and his birth was recorded in January 1909,
  • His father was Jacob Kupstas, a laborer from Lithuania residing in Worcester,
  • His mother was Weronika [Veronika] Shurakauskuta [Shurakauskute?] from Lithuania, residing in Worcester.

The maiden name of the mother is probably not correctly spelled Shurakauskuta, but I do not know the correct spelling of the surname.

John Kupstas would later marry Agnes H. Skowronski.
