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.Read more ›
