Dear Mr. Polák,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the Population Schedules for the 1920 Census, the 1930 Census, and the 1940 Census in the Records of the Bureau of the Census (Record Group 29). Vincent Babiarczyk can be found on page 20 of 1940 Census Population Schedules - Illinois - Cook County - ED 103-835. Not all of the digitized images for Cook County, IL in the 1920 Census and the 1930 Census have been downloaded into the Catalog yet. For access to these Population Schedules, please contact the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) via email at email@example.com.
Therefore, we searched Ancestry.com and found Vincent Babiarczyk in the 1920 U.S. Census, and the 1930 U.S. Census. There may be a fee for using Ancestry. Instead, you may view these records online at one NARA's facilities for free via a NARA PC. For the nearest NARA location, please consult our web page at https://www.archives.gov/locations/. Also, some of the images from Ancestry are available for free on Family Search at https://www.familysearch.org/en/.
The 1920 U.S. Census indicated that Vincent Babiarczyk was born in Austria to Polish parents and spoke Polish. It also indicated that he immigrated to the U.S. in 1911, was married to Kate Babiarczyk, had two children, Edward and Josaphine, and worked as a barber. The 1930 U.S. Census indicated that Vincent Babiarczyk was born in Czechoslovakia to parents born in Czechoslovakia and spoke Slovak. It also indicated that he immigrated to the US in 1910, was married to Gertrude Babiarzyk, had three children, Edward, Josaphine and Joseph, and worked as a barber. He also was, at this point a naturalized US citizen. The 1940 U.S. Census indicated that Vincent Babiarzyh was born in Poland. It also indicated that he was married to Catherine Babiarzyk, lived with his daughter Josaphine and her husband Walter Gajdosik, and worked as a barber. On all three censuses, his address was: 1507 W 47th St. Chicago, Cook, Illinois.
We also located a series titled Draft Registration Cards, 1917 - 1918 in the Records of the Selective Service System (World War I), 1917 - 1939 (Record Group 163). For access to these records please contact the National Archives at Atlanta (RE-AT) via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. As not all of these images have been uploaded to the Catalog, we searched Ancestry.com and located U.S., World War I Draft Registration Cards, 1917-1918 for Vincent Babierczyk.
We also located a series titled Soundex Index to Naturalization Petitions for the United States District and Circuit Courts in the Northern District of Illinois, and District 9, 1840 - 1950 (Microfilm Publication No: M1285, Roll no. 8) in Records of the Immigration and Naturalization Service, 1787-2004 (Record Group 85). These images have been digitized but have not been uploaded to the catalog. Therefore, M1285 is available on a DVD for $125 per disk.
