A Krolak History

Music: After the Ball

        Wojciech Krolak and Rozalia Glowacka Krolak originated from the town of Kruszwica Poland, in what was then the German partition.  Birth and marriage dates are not available at this time, although we can estimate the birth date of Wojciech as 1842 and Rozalia as 1843.  

    The birth order of their known children are; Marianna, Marcyanna, Antonina, Franciszka, Jozef, Julianna, Jan, and Magdalena.  These children, either alone or with their spouses, started to emigrate in the1890s.  Most, if not all of the family arrived first in Philadelphia, then many moved on to Chicago.
