Drobne Echa Articles – Translations of MN Polish Newspaper Articles from the Past

Drobne Echa (“Little Echoes”) series of articles were written by PGS-MN member, Greg Kishel, and posted in the PGS-MN newsletters between 2002 and 2012. They are a gold mine for PGS-MN members as they capture a snapshot of the lives of Polish immigrants who settled in Minnesota. The articles are a collection of translations from Polish newspapers that were published in Minnesota in the late 1800’s to early 1900’s (Wiarus, Słońce, Rolnik and Straż), and cover information from different Polish communities across Minnesota. Series Introduction is here.

To give you a feel for the series, we are posting a different installment of the articles each quarter. Hopefully, if you are not yet a member of PGS-MN, it will entice you to join! We posted the first installment here on St. Cloud, Sauk Rapids and Gilman, Minnesota in Spring 2024. The Second Installment, which focuses on Delano, Minnesota, can be found here.

If you are already a PGS-MN member, you can find links to all 22 Drobne Echa installments in the Members Only section of our website, in the Overall Minnesota section of From Poland to MN.

We hope you enjoy this timeless resource!
