Antoine Czapieski (my 2X great Grandfather) was born 03 MAR 1840 in Kalisz, Lipuza, Poland and arrived in Canada 29 JUL 1872 Ship Bark Agda.

He was 25 yrs old, with him was his wife Paulina Dzwonkowski born 1850 in Kalisz,Lipuza,Poland.
Paulina Dzwonkowski's father: Lucas Dzwonkowski, born in Kalisz, remained in Poland.
Paulina Dzwonkowski's: Florentian Heska, no further information

Sometime after Antoine and Paulina arrived in Canada Antoine's parents also came to Canada.

Antoine's father was Michail Czapiewski
Birth: 1805 in Kalisz, Lipuza,Poland.

Antoine's mother was Madeline Chermeski(Czermeski?) born in Kalisz in 1808.

I know that all of these ancestors lived in a Polish settlement of Wilno, Ontario, Canada.

I am pleased to know my family paternal family history thus far - however - I am curious to know of any "cousins" who remained in Poland. Please email me if you have any information. mgutscher(at)
