The Great Kashubian Migration

« Back to Projects Dashboard

Profiles

In the mid-1800s Kashubians migrated for economic reasons. After the Franco-Prussian War and the unification of Germany under Bismarck, Kashubians were met with institutionalized hostility. Life was very harsh for the Kashubs. It was illegal to use Polish or Kashubian in public, especially in church. Many priests were imprisoned or exiled. Churches were left with no parish priests. As a result, many more Kashubs left their homeland and migrated to the United States, Canada, Brazil, Australia, New Zealand and other destinations. (source: Wikipedia)

The purpose of this project is to aid genealogists with their research by linking families (profiles) to areas of settlement.

Due to the sheer volume, this project will focus only on the original settlers (husband and wife) and not their children or descendants.

1. RENFREW COUNTY

The Kashubs formed the largest and most distinct element of Polish emigration to Renfrew County and are recognized as the first large group of Polish immigrants to arrive in Canada with their Canadian history starting in 1858. Today, the Kashubs constitute one of the most distinct regional and ethnocultural groups in Poland. (source: http://sainthedwigchurch.com/about-us/43-the-kashub-s-catholic-heritage)

1. WINONA COUNTY

Winona, Minnesota proudly claims the distinction of being the Kashubian Capital of America. The first documentable Kashubian immigrants reached Winona in 1859. Winona has never been a purely Kashubian settlement, as were its contemporary settlements in Renfrew County, Ontario and Portage County, Wisconsin. But Winona’s Kashubian community quickly grew larger than these other two communities. The 1900 US Census placed Winona’s population at 19,714 people. At about the same time, Hieronim Derdowski – editor of Winona’s Polish-language newspaper Wiarus – estimated Winona’s Polish population at 5000 people, with 4,000 being of Kashubian descent. Granted, Chicago’s Kashubian parish of Saint Josaphat claimed a membership of 5,000 parishioners in 1902. But Chicago’s Kashubians were but a fraction of its Polish community. By contrast, Winona’s Kashubian Poles made up 20% of Winona’s population, and 80% of its Polish community. (JH)

9. OTTER TAIL COUNTY

The 1875 Minnesota State Census shows Kashubian families living in Otter Tail County, near where the town of Perham was incorporated in 1877. Among these were Kashubian families which had originally settled in Winona or in Trempealeau County, Wisconsin. In 1881, the Polish parish of Saint Stanislaus Kostka was established there. Perham was not a “Kashubian” or even a “Polish” town, since the Kashubians were well outnumbered by Scandinavians and Western Europeans. But the parish of Saint Stanislaus Kostka served an established Polish community until it was closed in 2009. (JH)

11. ROSEAU COUNTY

The destination of the late 19th century Kashubian migration to the Roseau County area, centers around the townships of Barto & Polonia. Many of these settlers were second generation immigrant, born and raised in the Winona/Trempealeau County area. Saint Aloysius Catholic Church was organized in 1898, in the area known as Leo, located in western Barto Township. The first Mass was celebrated in the home of Anton Kukowski in 1897. In 1898, the church was built on ten acres of land donated by John Kaszubowski and the cemetery adjoins the church. The church closed in 1998 although special services are held throughout the year. Due to the transportation difficulties of the day, Leo (non-incorporated municipality) became the heart of the community, where postal service, a store and St. Aloysius Catholic Church were located. With today’s transportation capability, the center has moved to the town of Greenbush, where Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church & Cemetery are located.

15. SWIFT COUNTY

In 1879 a group of Polish people, mostly from St Paul and Hastings, settled in New Posen (now Edison Township, Swift County, Minnesota). By 1887 the little colony had grown to nineteen families and they decided to build a church. Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Blahosky, Sr. donated five acres of land to be used for the site of Saint Joseph Church and Cemetery. In 1944 the church was moved into Holloway, which is in Moyer Township, leaving just the cemetery. Around 1990 the church closed in Holloway and consolidated with Saint John Catholic Church in Appleton, MN, who is now the custodian and maintains the cemetery grounds. http://www.interment.net/data/us/mn/swift/stjoseph/

Jones Island a peninsula located underneath the Hoan Bridge, began as a fishing village populated by Polish settlers from the Kaszubes region in 1870. The Kaszubes created a commercial fishing village, working Lake Michigan for decades. They were squatters, but nobody wanted the land at the time. The Kaszubes were evicted from the island by the city of Milwaukee in the 1940s and many moved to nearby South Side Milwaukee neighborhoods. In 1974, a tiny "Kaszube's Park" on the northwest side of Jones Island was dedicated in recognition of the unique multi-ethnic fishing village that flourished on this peninsula during the late 19th and 20th centuries and played a significant role in the city's history.

6. PORTAGE COUNTY

The Kashubian settlement in Portage County, Wisconsin (not to be confused with the city of Portage, Wisconsin) is the United States’s oldest. The first Kashubian to settle there was Michael Koziczkowski, formerly of Gdansk, who arrived in Stevens Point late in 1857. A son, Michael Junior, was born to Koziczkowski and his wife Franciszka on September 6, 1858 in Portage County. Within five years, more than two dozen Kashubian families joined the Koziczkowskis. Since the Portage County Kashubian community was largely agricultural, it was spread out over Sharon, Stockton, and Hull townships. After the end of the Civil War, many more immigrants from throughout occupied Poland settled in Portage County, this time including the city of Stevens Point. A detailed history of the Polish community of Portage County, published in 1959 by the late Malcolm Rosholt, is available online at http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~wispags/history/ethnic-polish.html .(JH)

8. TREMPEALEAU COUNTY

Trempealeau County's Kashubian community is best understood as an extension of the Winona, Minnesota Kashubian community just across the Mississippi River. Settled in the early 1860s by Kashubian immigrants who had arrived in Winona first, the township of Dodge became the center of a small but thriving community centered around its own Roman Catholic church in Pine Creek. Although Dodge itself possessed several thriving businesses, Winona remained the effective center of the regional Kashubian community. It was common for Kashubians, individuals and families alike, to move from Winona to Dodge (or vice versa) multiple times within a generation. (JH)

By late 1877 Jan Barzynski, a member of the Chicago based Polish Roman Catholic Union of America (PRCUA), brokered railroad lands to Polish settlers. His plan was to settle 400 Polish Families on railroad land in Howard, Greeley, Valley and Sherman Counties. The Polish communities established in Nebraska included: New Poznan (later named Farwell), Elba, Elyria (Boleszyn), Paplin (Choynice), Loup City and Ashton.

BRAZIL

The Poles arrived in the Brazilian state of Paraná from the end of the 1860s up to the start of the First World War. They came from all three parts of partitioned Poland. Some of the earliest settlers were from Opole in Śląsk and from Gdańsk in the Prussian sector of the Partition. Later many came from Galicia in the Austro-Hungarian Empire and from such provinces as Lublin and Siedlce in Russian Poland. The Brazilian census of 1920 apparently counted 32,299 individuals of Polish birth.
