I have a FRANZ Blaschke and family, arrived in Brazil in Jan/1890, Santos Port, Ship Ohio. Family Nationality: German.
Also, MICHAEL Blaschke and family, arrived in Brazil in July/1890, Santos Port, Ship Bismark. Family Nationality: Russian. 
Also, HENRIETTE Blaschke (39) and apparently daughter ANTONIA (14), in  Oct/1890, Santos Port, Ship Para. Family Nationality: German.

No BLESCHKE found.

Let me know if there's any connection with your Bleschke, so I can send the family member names.

Regards from Brazil.

Hi Vera,

here is my try.

In the books of the evangelical (German) Parish of Łabiszyn I found a few Blech. There the names are written in German with no polonization.
Ble(s)ch-ke would be the "little" (junior) Blech. Blaschke would be the polonized version of Blesch. Blech comes from the German word bleich and may describe a persons appearance (having a pale skin).

best regrds,

Reiner (Kerp)
