The best way to find that info would probably be to view the 1920
census and see who was listed as living there.  The only online
completely searchable census for 1920 that I know of is at:

There is a yearly subscription fee to do this.  Of course, you can
view the census the old fashioned way at your local National Archives.
 It seems they have some sort of online access at their facilities. 
Thier homepage is here:

Here is the closest facility in New York:

The only other strategies for finding that information include finding
out if there is a local historical society, sometimes they have that
information.  You can scour old telephone directories, which are
sometimes on microfilm at a city or state library.

I have access to the Database for a month.  I would not
be willing to plow through every record to find out which one had
Utica Street (it isn't searchable by address), but if you give me a
name I can check to see whether or not that person is listed as living
there in 1920.  Just an idea.  I'll see if I can figure out which
district, etc the address falls under in the meantime but advise me
whether the above prospect meets your needs.

I should point out that bowler-ga is not a Google Answers Researcher,
so his generous offer to assist you is his private initiative and it
is, of course, not subject to any kind of fee.

When I asked you if there is a particular name you want to verify I
not only do it to try to specifically answer your question but also to
further clarify the question so that maybe one of the paid researchers
can further assist you.  Scriptor-ga is an excellent resource for
geneological research and is probably more familiar with ways to
answer your question.  This question is actually fairly difficult to
answer and these are just hints to try to discover an answer.

My family resided at that address in 1923.My fathers name was Henry Burzycki.
My mothers name was Bernice (Braunislawa In Polish). I need to know
when they moved there and how long they stayed at that address.

Your looking for then the family that lived there before your family. 
I did find your family living at an Oliver Street at the time, so your
family was not at 106 Utica Street in 1920 at least.  I can give you
more information on that if you wish.  But, as I stated before the
website I'm looking at is not searchable by address so to find the
address you listed would involve me plowing through maybe 200-300
pages of information to find who was living at Utica Street in 1920. 
As stated above, I'm not one of the paid researchers.  I'm not sure if
any of the other researchers have similiar access as I do but perhaps
if you raise the price of your question and if one of the reseachers
has the access, maybe your question can be answered.  Or at least you
can know who lived there in 1920.  I'll let you know if I figure out
any other way to answer your question.

To Bowler-ga:
You mentioned Oliver St in your comments and I would like to follow up on that.
Your recommendation to raise the price I would pay mkes sense.I will
adjust that to $20.00. My parents were immigrants and poor. The
liklyhood of them having a telephone during that period would be nill.

First of all, this question has expired.  I'm not sure that any of the
researchers can answer it formally now.  You may want to repost the
question with the $20.00 fee.  I will however give you all the info I

699 Oliver Street, Unit 131?, number 158 (apt. number?).North
Tonawanda City, Niagara, New York
Henryk Burzycki is listed as the head of the household. 26 years old.

Brauslaus (i think, difficult to read) is listed as the wife.  24 years old.

Two sons, Taducz (1 1/2 years old), and the other name is difficut to
make out, closest I can come is Millejslaus (5 years old).

That is basically all I can tell you about what I found.  If I can be
of further assistance please let me know.

To Bowler-ga:
Your search of the Oliver st. address makes sense. The 5 year old was Matthew
(Mielejslaus in Polish). This family resided at the following addresses:
Wheatfield st. N.Tonawanda,NY                     1917-1918
Oliver St.N.Tonawanda,NY(your search)in 1919-? 
Utica St,tonawanda, NY                  19??-1923
This gives me the address during WW1 based on the info you provided. Is there 
a way to verify this? If so, send me a verification and let me know
what I owe you. I presume $20.00 Many thanks
Will this information help in locating Henrie's Draft Card status?

First of all, fortunately for you, I am owed nothing since I am not
one of the paid researchers (not for lack of trying though). 
Secondly, the only way for you to verify this information would be for
you to see a copy of the Census form from which I obtained this
information.  The only conceivable way is for you to go to your local
national archives as I stated in a previous comment:

Thier homepage is here:

Here is the closest facility in New York:

Or, alternately you can subscribe to the database from which I
obtained the information:

The database is easy to use and the ability to simply print the
sections you need is invaluable.  Besides, based on your other
questions on this service subscribing to this database may be of
further assistance to you.  I've found it invaluable for basic
geneological research.

There is another way to get you the verification and that is for me to
produce an image of the census form and post it on the web for you to
view but that task may prove beyond my technical capabilities so I'll
see what I can do but I'm not promising anything.

His draft card seems elusive, you may want to try the advice of the
first commentor on that question.  He/She seems to have extensive
knowledge of the subject.  I haven't been able to locate the correct
card based on your information.  Sorry.
