  1. Steve,

    Found this entry through searching “Worcester” on GeneaBlog. Well, they’ve done it again! More of your family living in the same three-deckers as my family. Your Izbickis were at 2 Meade St. with my mom’s Prokopowicz family. Your Markiewiczes are at 320 Millbury St. with my dad’s Prokopowicz family. The family of Julius and Anna Prokopowicz moved to 320 (from a series of other addresses southerly on Millbury Street) in the spring of 1940 or so. My grandma died there in April 1976, ending that era. They lived on the first floor. My aunt Jane and your Jane Markiewicz have been lifelong friends. You can see pix of 320 Millbury on my blog post “Millbury Street: Julius & Anna’s Homes” at

    Zero degrees of separation here!

    Hi Barbara,

    The three-decker at 320 Millbury Street looks very familiar. I seem to remember that one of my Niedzialkoski cousins took me by there because his family had lived there, too. I may even have a photo of this same house buried away somewhere! Thanks for recognizing the address in the naturalization record.

    Dzien dobry Barbara,
    Hi Steve,

    I met you, Steve, in Warszawa in Sept. this year! My Sister can meet you, Barbara, every day, as she lives actually on Millbury Street.

    Global village, isn’t it?

    Best greetings from Warszawa,
    Tadeusz
