Reply with quote

I am from Northeastern Pennsylvania (Taylor & Old Forge, Lackawanna County, PA). Many Polish and other Eastern Europeans immigrated to this area; many to work in the coal mines where work was plentiful.

Both sides of my family (Polish & Russian) immigrated to this area in the 1890's.
The PBS station in NE PA did a great documentary series a few years ago. I found the documentary to be extremely accurate in describing the experiences of my family. A brief overview and a link for additional information is provided below.

THE EXTRAORDINARY JOURNEY - THE EASTERN EUROPEANS
The Extraordinary Journey Series - The Eastern Europeans focuses on the largest eastern European ethnic groups that settled here--the Polish, Slovaks, and Ukrainians. It also includes the historical contributions of an additional 20 ethnic groups, including Russians, Lithuanians, Hungarians, and Czechs.
