My grandfather, Kostanty Niedzialkowski, immigrated to the United States from Russian Poland in May 1910. On his passenger manifest, he stated that he planned to stay with his uncle, Franciszek Niedzialkowsky, at 18 Huntington Ave., Worcester, Mass.
In the 1910 Worcester Directory published by Drew Allis Co., Frank Niedzialkosky is listed at that same address.

- Frank Niedzialkosky was a moulder at 100 Prescott and lived at 18 Huntington av.
The spelling of the surname, Niedziatkosky, is in error. The Polish letter “ł” was incorrectly entered as the English letter “t”. This error is not unexpected. In Poland, the name was spelled “Niedziałkowski” but, in America, the name was often spelled without the “w” and with a “y” in place of the final “i”.
Where did Frank work? His occupation was moulder and he worked at 100 Prescott Street in Worcester, but that’s all I know.
