For over 150 years, Milwaukee has been home to a large community of people of Polish descent. The Milwaukee Polonia Project hopes to show the interweaving, intertwining family trees that resulted in this community. It is hoped that, eventually, all the families can be connected to one another. The Milwaukee Polonia Project is also a means to explore our common history and celebrate our shared heritage.

THE ACTUAL DATABASE OF THE TREE IS NOW LOCATED AT THE MILWAUKEE POLONIA PROJECT TREE at Tribal Pages. (We still have much work to do, so don't assume that families are shown completely.) YOU DO NOT NEED A PASSWORD TO ACCESS INFORMATION ON DECEASED INDIVIDUALS.

Featured Profile #43 - Nicholas Tylicki

Nicholas Tylicki  (1875 - 1950)


We have been discussing the true crime story of  "Sin, Confession, and ... Cover-up?" (Part 1) and (Part Two).  One of the principal actors in that story was a Milwaukee private detective by the name of Mary Tylicki.  As mentioned in the story, there are several woman on the tree who may have been that private detective.  All of them are daughters-in-law of Joseph Tylicki.  One possibility is the wife of Nicholas Tylicki. Nicholas is profiled in Memoirs of Milwaukee County, (1909) edited by Jerome Anthony Watrous,  at page 983:
