    Hi Steve,
    Your part about misspellings reminded me of when I spelled cematery and Keene and found what I needed through google! If you google those two words together, there are hundreds. Looks like a lot of people spell that word wrong. And I guess they spell it cemetary as well! On another matter, I plan on going in to NEHGS, and will look up your Clifford Blackman’s birth in the index.

    From the Massachusetts Index for years 1911-1915 there is a Clifford A. Blackman born in Brookline on 1919 (right next to Boston). His birth is recorded there in Vol. 30, pg. 497. Hope this is your guy.

  3. Hi Barbara,

    Regarding the misspellings, I remember that George Morgan has said that we have to learn to misspell the names of our ancestors. I guess your experience shows that we have to learn to misspell other words as well!

    The Clifford A. Blackman you found doesn’t appear to fit into my family tree, but I’ll make a note in my “might be related” file to check the record the next time I’m in Massachusetts. Thanks so much for your help. You’re a gem!

    Hi Steve,

    I have found your website. It is very nice and interesting.

    I live in Warszawa, Poland and study Izbicki’s genealogy for years. It is very funny but I have full genealogy of Boleslaw Izbicki – Bernard’s Father.

    If you (or somebody else, especially Izbickis from Worcester, Mass) are interesting in it I could share with you and inform about our common roots.

    Best regards,
    Tadeusz Izbicki
