My grandfather’s uncle, Frank Niedzialkoski, immigrated to the United States in 1903 and was listed in the Worcester City Directory for the first time in 1905.

Click on the link for a PDF copy of the Worcester Directory 1905 Entry for Frank Niedzialkoski. The brief record states the following:
Frank Niedziulkowski was a moulder at 100 Prescott and lived at 11 Redding ct.
The spelling of the surname, Niedziulkowski, is in error. The “u” should be an “a”. Frank usually spelled his name without the “w”, although the name was properly spelled with the “w” in Poland.
Frank did not live at 11 Redding Court for long. The address, however, somewhat surprised me because, in 1910, my grandfather, Michael Danko, lived at 9 Redding Court, right next door.
