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 Bernice Celia (Bessie) Markiewicz.  The ledger states:

  • Bernice Celia (Bessie) Markiewicz’s birth is recorded as Vol. 630, Page 602, No. 2763 in the ledger for the city of Worcester,
  • Her name was recorded as Bessie Markiewicz, a female child born in Worcester
  • She was born on 07 October 1915 and her birth was recorded in January 1916,
  • Her father was Stanley Markiewicz [Stanisław Markiewicz], a laborer from Russia residing in Worcester,
  • Her mother was Antonina Levodzauki [Antonina Lejwoda?] from Russia, residing in Worcester.

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

Bernice Celia Markiewicz would later marry Edward Alexander Skowronski.
