Emigration from Poland in 1891 #poland


As my family left Poland, they had lived in Kolo, just 100 mile west of
Warszaw, in 1891, the posting below leads me to ask the question as to whether
anyone knows if there was a defining event or events that would have encouraged
emigration during that time?

I've read descriptions of the 1905 and 1906 pogroms and they were indeed
very gruesome

No wonder they sparked a wave of immigration.
