Schwerin Warthe

Genealogy and History

Related Link: Polish and German Genealogy Research

Skwierzyna (Schwerin Warthe) is located in the part of present day Poland, which until 1945 and for much of its history was part of the Prussian province of Posen, Germany. Following the border changes agreed by the Versailles Treaty, all of the former province of Posen, except the counties of Fraustadt, Meseritz and Schwerin Warthe, briefly became part of the province of Grenzmark. Then again following the reorganisation of German provinces in 1938 Kreis Schwerin Warthe and the nearby Kreis Meseritz joined East Brandenburg. In 1945 the German population of the town either fled from the advancing Soviet Army or was expelled when the area around Schwerin Warthe became part of Poland. In the place of the German populace came new arrivals from all over Poland and what is now Ukraine. 

The change from Germany to Poland led to both Skwierzyna and the villages around Skwierzyna being given different names. Here is a list of most of the surrounding hamlets and villages. See also: population figures for Schwerin Warthe (Skwierzyna).
