Kapino (Waldenburg), Kreis Neustadt, West Prussia

The area surrounding the town of Neustadt (Wejherowo) was also a source of many Remus family records. These Remus family members migrated to MI and the village of Remus, MI was named after them. The complete set of Remus family records can be found on the Bohlschau webpage.

For a while several of the family members worked on the manorial farm in Kapino (Waldenburg). Remnants of the manorial farm (picture 1) and barns (picture 2) still exist but there are also many modern buildings (picture 3). Here are pictures:

The Remus family was also on manorial farms in the villages of Gora, Bohlschau, Nanitz, and Petzau (see Nanitz).. Later some Remus family members moved directly to MI while others spent time in Wilhelmshuld (Kolonia) prior to immigrating.
