Surnames: DURA WOJDA
I have now found that my great grandfather Jacob Dura was born in 1840 in Bialosliwie and was baptized, and his five children baptized in the Catholic church in Krostkowo. I am looking for any information on these two families. Their parents were John Dura and Anna Chrabocianka (Jacob) and Bartholomaia Wojda and Matilda Malka.

Any information on this area or these names would be greatly appreciated. They were farmers and I'm wondering what and how they farmed in the mid-19th century.

Jacob and Mary, along with five children aged 1-10, emigrated to America in 1881 through the Port of Bremen. How could they or would they have made the 444-mile trip from Bialosliwie? What was the area like?
