Walter, I don't know exactly where this Modrzejewski name is from. I do know my grandfather's family came from an area near Wloclawek, about 15 miles west. They lived in several towns: Jaranowo, Rzadka Wola, Falborz, Biele. These are all in the OLD province of Wloclawek, but now are in Kujawsko-Pomorski province. My grandfather emigrated to US in 1913. I have found a village with the name Modrzew near all these above villages. I don't know if that's where the name came from, though. Hope this helps. I have found quite a few Modrzejewski's on the Ellis Island site, and a few in Milwaukee itself, but never anyone related directly to my grandfather. He was the only one in his family to emigrate to the US. We still have quite a few relatives in Kujawsko-Pomorski.
