While it is not uncommon to stumble upon people living into their nineties on occasion, discovering people who lived to be 100 or older is certainly met with surprise. This list is a compilation of submissions for people who were verified to have lived to be at least 90 years old. To qualify for this list, the person must have been born before 1945 in Pomeranian territories or lands that were once or later became part of Pomerania. A few exceptions will be made for those who were born after 1945 but before the expulsion. For deaths, people may have lived for a significant period of time in Pomerania but died outside of the border if they moved. Similarly, deaths of people who migrated from other neighboring territories, but lived inside the Pomeranian border could also be found here.

The entry above shows the death of a woman from the Lupow parish in Stolp who lived to be 113.

This page will be maintained with the latest additions. To submit a chance find or put your relative’s name on the list, please send an email via the contact information in the sidebar.
