Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book for researching geneology from the Prussian (Eastern Germany) area. The book includes many pictures of the area in Prussia, Russia, and a list of names of the immigrants to northeastern Wisconsin. This list includes information such as: country of origin, port of entry, year of entry, spouses, and as many birth and death dates as the author could locate. It also includes a great deal of history of the Eastern Prussian area, life in East Prussia, and what prompted many people to immigrate first to Russia and then to America. The book goes on to provide a history of the Pound, Wisconsin area and it's people, complete with pictures.

East Prussians From Russia by Michael J. Anuta Review by DearMYRTLE © 2 February 1999
DearReaders, Originally published in 1979, little paperback book is so full of research ideas that Clearfield had to publish East Prussians From Russia two additional times, in 1994 and 1998. Chapter headings include: East Prussia, the Land and Early History A Refuge for the Persecuted Development under Prussian Rulers Our Forefathers in East Prussia Invitation to Vohlynia and Migration to the Promised Land The East Prussian Settlers in Vohlynia Baptist Faith and Beliefs Change in Russian Political Climate Preparations for a New Migration Journey to the New World The East Prussians in Wisconsin Church Life in Pound, Coleman and Vicinity East Prussians Became Americans
Pages 171-184 provide a list of immigrants, You also find an epilogue titled "Final Pilgrimage." The bibliography is listed on two pages of tiny print, with an additional page of suggested reading. Throughout the book are rough photocopies of maps, churches, farmlands, people tombstones, documents and such. From the publisher: "Following the subjugation of the indigenous Prusi people by the Teutonic Order during the 13th century, the region known as eastern Prussia emerged as a kind of haven for Christian settlement. During the 1860s, however, numerous East Prussians migrated to the Ukraine and the Russian province of Vohlynia in search of more abundant land. The promise of a better life in Russia proved to be short-lived, however, owing to the abolition of serfdom, universal military conscription, and Russian ethnocentrism. As a result, by the 1890s, large numbers of East Prussians from Russia began to emigrate to the United States, with many, like the author's parents, settling in Wisconsin.

Pound, Wisconsin and its surrounding area has a great deal of history. This book is a great read for anyone who has an interest in their history. Because of Michael Anuta researching for many years and then writing this book my father found out about relatives he did not know existed. He found his mother's grave and was able to place a headstone and there is even a picture of where she is buried in Peshtigo, Wisconsin. There are pictures of documents showing the immigration records of when his relative came into the United States through Ellis Island. I am now using this book to help me research so I can attempt to do a family tree to pass on to my children and grandchild. I recommend this book.
