My cousin, Anastasia Rita Meleski, would marry Bernard Joseph Izbicki in 1968. Bernard’s mother, Wiktoria Kruczyńska, was enumerated in the 1940 US Federal Census with her son, Stanislaw Joseph Izbicki, at 17 Ward St, Worcester, Worcester Co., Massachusetts. Wiktoria’s husband, Bolesław Dominik Izbicki, died in 1937.

The record states that:
- The Izbickis lived at 17 Ward St, Worcester, Worcester Co., Massachusetts, USA on 01 April 1940, they were household 3 in order of visitation, they rented their home which was worth $1400, they lived in the same house on 01 April 1935, and they did not live on a farm
- Victoria Izbicki was head of household, was a white female, 60 years old, widowed, was not attending school, was born in Massachusetts, was working the week of March 24-30, worked 11 hours the week of March 24-30 as a housewife, and did not earn more than $50 from sources other than wages
- Stanley Izbicki, son of Victoria, was a white male, 23 years old, single, was not attending school, completed 4 years of high school, was born in Massachusetts, worked 50 hours the week of March 24-30, worked as a clerk in a drug store, worked in private work, worked 52 weeks in 1939, earned $676, and did not earn more than $50 from sources other than wages
The person who collected this information was not quite clear on the instructions. Instead of writing down the monthly rent, he wrote down the value of the house. Instead of indicating one person as head of household, he wrote “mother.” He indicated that Victoria worked for pay, but she did not. He also did not indicate who provided the information.
