Application for Social Security Account Number for Anastasia Rita Meleski
Click on the link for a PDF copy of the Application for Social Security Account Number for Anastasia Rita Meleski – 1945The application states:
Anastasia Rita Meleski lived at 5 Beaver Street in Worcester, Massachusetts
She was 33 years old when she applied; she was born on 22 Feb 1911 in Worcester, Worcester County, Massachusetts
The name given her at birth was Anastasia Rita Meleski
Her parents were Joseph Meleski and U. Katherine Warchol
She was a white female and had not previously applied for a Social Security Account Number or a Railroad Retirement Number

There are several stray marks on Anastasia Rita Meleski’s application, including the initials CL at the top, the initial M in two places at the bottom, the numbers 420 and 21 to the right, and the notation “Park View Rest.” on the left.
The way Anastasia Rita Meleski initially entered her name on the application was A. RITA MELESKI, indicating that she may have routinely used the name Rita instead of Anastasia at this point in her life.
The name Anastasia Rita provided for her mother was U. Katherine Warchol. This is the first time I’ve seen the letter “U” used in Katherine Warchol’s name. Perhaps her first name is not Katherine after all. The Big Book of Names provides a number of choices for Polish first names beginning with “U”. The most common I’ve seen is Urszula. I’ll have to keep this in mind if I look for the Birth Record for U. Katherine Warchol.
