I am searching DESPERATELY to find the SIBLINGS of my g-g-grandfather, Vincent (Wicenty/Wigurty) Kaczmarek of the Poznan, Poland area. His siblings were Michal (Michael), Adrzej (Andrew), Marcin (Martin), Jan (John), and Marianna (Mary) - all born in Poland. Father's name is rumored to be Jozef Kaczmarek - have no concrete proof of mother's name.
Vincent was born in 1854 and emmigrated to Minnesota around 1873 from the Gdansk area. We suspect Michael and Andrew had emmigrated (to the Scranton, PA area) before Vincent and helped him enter the country illegally (to avoid the Russian conscription). Mary also immigrated, but to Detroit, MI.
Vincent married Victoria Drewicke in Hastings, MN in 1878 and were parents to Lawrence (1880-1961), Ann (1882 - died in infancy), John (1884-1931), Leon (1886-1971), Mary (1888-1934), Lucy (?), Joseph (1893-1977), and Theresa (1895-1987). Vincent died in Perham, MN in 1927.
Could anyone out there be the decendants of Michael, Andrew, Martin, John or Mary??? I need the connection to be able to find Vincent's parents and ancestors in Poland. PLEASE help if you might have a clue.
