      Getting Inspiration!
      God saw you getting tired
      When a cure was not to be
      So He closed His arms around you
      And whispered 'Come to Me'
      You didn't deserve what you went through.
      And so He gave you rest
      God's garden must be beautiful
      He only takes the best
      And when I saw you sleeping
      So peaceful and free of pain
      I could not wish you back
      To suffer that again.

      In memory of Myron M. Felckowski (October 16, 1947 - September 25, 2015).

      The www.Bigalke.biz/myronfelckowski website was started in 2005, and Myron's research has been available online since then. In Myron's legacy, his research (gedcom dated July 27, 2015 of 197,631 individuals) will continue to remain available to the public, by the webmaster, Susan Chapman. Myron and Susan's common ancestor is their great-grandfather, Simon Felckowski.

      Families of Portage County, Wisconsin by Myron Felckowski (1947-2015)

      This family tree contains families which are not directly related to
      Myron's paternal/maternal families which are
      Felckowski/Feltz/Filtz and Kawlewski/Kawleski.

      The relationships exist to families which married Myron's paternal/maternal families.


      Myron's interest in his ancestry began in 1992 when his mother's family Kawleski was researched by Jeanne Valerie Conrad–Tanghe and Agnes Kawleski–Golla. The first Kawleski Family reunion was held that year with about 500 people attending the weekend long event. A book about the history of the Kawleski family was available for all the descendants along with a video which contained photos of the family since immigration in 1880–1881. The book was updated in 2004 as well as a CD being made which are available at the Portage County Public Library along with the University of Wisconsin–Stevens Point Archives Library.

      The Felckowski (a/k/a Feltz – Filtz) family began its residence in the Township of Sharon, Portage County, Wisconsin before 1870 by emigrating from Hamburg, Germany on 01 May 1868 and arriving in Quebec, Canada on 16 Jul 1868. Based on the known ship records each immigrant had about a 3ft X 3ft space to endure a journey of about 75 days. Since Poland as a nation only existed in the hearts of the people at the time of the marriage of Simon Felckowski and Marianna Trawicka took place in Tuschkau, Lippusch, Berent, West Prussia now known as Tuszkowy, Lipusz, Koscierzyna, Pomorskie, Poland.

      Another branch of the Felckowski family (Peter Felckowski and Victoria Olszewska) immigrated in 1872 with residence in the Township of Sharon before moving before 1900 to the Township of Pike Lake now Bevent, Marathon County, Wisconsin. Research is continuing by Brian Feltz, a descendant of Simon and Marianna for a link between the families. A special thanks to Brian for all research done of the records in Poland in finding the parents of Simon and Marianna.

      Five children of Simon and Marianna with a son–in–law Mathias Literski, two grandchildren survived the ocean passage with all settling in Portage County, Wisconsin. A daughter, Anna Felckowska married Jan (John) Gillmeister shortly after becoming a resident with the oldest child being born in 1871. Another daughter of Anna and Jan, Suzanna Gilmeister was born on 06 Jun 1887 and she married Theodore N. Bigalke on 10 May 1905 in Sacred Heart Catholic Church, Polonia, Sharon, Portage County, Wisconsin
