Here is a link to a list of emigrants from Pommerania (Hinterpommern)


The migration of citizens from Kreis Dramburg to Poland in the year 1745

      During the Thirty Years War many citizens of the Neumark (cultural area) fled to neighboring Poland for protection from the ravages of war. Most of them returned after the conflicts subsided, but many remained in their new settlements. In the years 1657 and 1674/75, again of wars, the process was repeated and again in 1714. Especially, the people of Kreis Dramburg with the villages Zamzow, Prochnow, Pammin, Klebow, Denzig, Mellen and Karwitz as well as people from the Ämter Sabin and Balster migrated because of high taxes and failed harvests.

      The author Erich Utke made a list of all those who escaped in the year 1745 and settled in Poland. The list was published in Archiv für Sippenforschung, Jahrgang 20, Heft 11 (1943), starting with page 225. Mr. Utke provides Names, family members, place of origin and if known, their present place of residence. The periodical is available through FamilySearch, Family History Library catalog, call number 943 B2as.
