CHURCHES of our ANCESTORS
The church was very important to our immigrant ancestors. In fact, for some of them, it was the freedom to teach and train their children in the truth of the Word that led to their decision to leave behind all they'd ever known, and to strike out to the new land of Wisconsin. These are photos of the houses of worship attended by our immigrant ancestors.
From Arlene Dudley
"View of the church at Nahhausen near Koenigsberg in the Neu-Mark, Kingdom of Prussia." From a collection of family photos belonging to the Fellwock family of Mayville, Wisconsin. Thought to be from about 1890-1920 or so.
These three churches in what is now Poland are probably several hundred years old, and are probably the very buildings that our ancestors worshiped in, were baptized and married in.
