Vincent (Wincety, Wigurty) Kaczmarek siblings - Poznan, Poland

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.

My great grandfather was Michael Kazimierczak (sp?) born 1821 in Posen. His father was Martin and Martin's father was Joseph. My grandfather was Mathew and he immigrated to the US and lived in NJ, along with some of his brothers.

The years don't seem to correlate. The brothers I'm looking for would have been born somewhere between 1850 and 1860. If your g-grandfather was born in 1921, it might have worked, but your ancestors all seem to be born way before my g-g-grandfather (1854).

Thank you so much for trying to help, though! I treasure any and every clue I can find...there are way too many Kaczmareks in Poland. It's like looking for a needle in a haystack!!

It's possible your Jozef Kaczmarek born 1834 and my Michal born 1821 were brothers. Michal had a daughter, Anna who moved to MN. She married George Singer and lived in Polk Co and Deer Park, Pennington.

Yes, I guess it is possible now that you put it that way. Do you know any more about Michal and the family that moved from Poland? Siblings? Immigration dates? Where they were born? What church they attended? Any little clue helps.

I have befriended two Kaczmareks that live in Poznan, Poland through Facebook. They are both willing to try to help me find information in Poland that I haven't been able to access. Problem is, Kaczmarek is SO common in Poland - especially in Poznan. One of them told me that Poznan is called the "City of Kaczmareks"!!!

I think without having a professional genealogist or actually traveling to Poland, my search is going to be a difficult one, for sure!

Please share any links, other family trees, or contacts that you have used to find what you know...I would appreciate it so much!
