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.

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.
