The record states that:

    • The Izbickis lived at 28 Golden St, Norwich, New London Co., Connecticut, USA on 01 April 1940, they were household 134 in order of visitation, they owned their dwelling which was worth $4800, Anthony and Raymond lived in the same house but Josephine lived in Newark on 01 April 1935, and they did not live on a farm
    • Anthony Izbicki was head of household, was a white male, 49 years old, married, was not attending school, was born in Poland and was a naturalized citizen, was working the week of March 24-30, worked 45 hours the week of March 24-30, 1940 as a truck driver for the city transportation department, worked in government work, worked 52 weeks in 1939, earned $1144, and did not earn more than $50 from sources other than wages
    • Josephine Izbicki was the wife of Anthony, provided the information for the census, was a white female, 46 years old, married, was not attending school, was born in Poland and was not a naturalized citizen, was not working the week of March 24-30, was not doing public emergency work, was not seeking work, did not have a job or business, was keeping house, worked 0 weeks in 1939, earned $0, and did not earn more than $50 from sources other than wages
    • Raymond Izbicki was the son of Anthony, was a white male, 18 years old, single, was attending school, had completed 3 years of high school, was born in Connecticut, was not working the week of March 24-30, was not doing public emergency work, was not seeking work, did not have a job or business, was a student, worked 0 weeks in 1939, earned $0, and did not earn more than $50 from sources other than wages

The occupation for Anthony Izbicki was “truck driver, city transportation department”.   His occupational code recorded in column F was 420-V9-2 which is defined as:

Chauffeurs and drivers, bus, taxi, truck, and tractor (drivers of coal trucks and oil trucks are included here while chauffeurs, truck drivers (including helpers and jumpers) and delivery boys for bakeries, laundries, dry cleaning establishments, stores, and such establishments as dental laboratories, shoe repair shops, printing and engraving shops, tailor shops, and photographic studios are included in 432)

Construction

Wage or salary worker in Government work (GW)

Anthony was also asked to answer supplementary questions.  His mother and father were both born in Poland, his mother tongue was Polish, he was not a veteran, he did not have a Social Security number, and his usual occupation was truck driver in government work.  Interestingly, the supplementary section listed Anthony’s occupational code as 420-98-2 rather than 420-V9-2, as it was listed in the main body of the census.  The difference in the middle numbers changes his job description to the more accurate:

Chauffeurs and drivers, bus, taxi, truck, and tractor (drivers of coal trucks and oil trucks are included here while chauffeurs, truck drivers (including helpers and jumpers) and delivery boys for bakeries, laundries, dry cleaning establishments, stores, and such establishments as dental laboratories, shoe repair shops, printing and engraving shops, tailor shops, and photographic studios are included in 432)

State and local government

Wage or salary worker in Government work (GW)

Josephine was apparently living in Newark in 1935, not in Norwich with Anthony.  Does this mean that this Josephine really isn’t Józefina Izbicka, daughter of Dominik Izbicki and Michalina Hołod, but is really a second wife with the same first name?  If not, what was Josephine doing in Newark in 1935?
