    Hi –

    As someone who doesn’t have any Polish ancestors, I really love reading about Polish genealogy. I knew Wisconsin was a common place that Germans immigrated to, but I didn’t know that many Polish people immigrated there. But it makes sense really, since the Polish cultures and German cultures are probably somewhat similar and have somewhat similar foods, etc. I don’t speak neither German or Polish, but I wonder if they are similar sounding.

    I went to WikiTree to see if any Troka profiles came up. I was pleasantly surprised that one profile did come up: http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Special:SearchPerson I know it isn’t much, but I figured it couldn’t hurt to let you know.

    Is Troka a common Polish surname?

    Good luck!

    I don’t think TROKA is very common, at least not around here. The only people I find are probably somehow related to me. I don’t know how common it is where the name came from in Lipusz.

    Milwaukee has a large Polish community, it’s one of the largest in the nation behind places like Detroit and Chicago. I’ll take a look at the link. Thanks.brianjz
