Glad you peeked in.  I would say Koniecpol is the spelling you want.

The Shtetlseeker locates only two Koniecpol towns or villages - one about 100
miles SSW of Kielce and the other SSE of Kielce City.

In my personal research I have found a village by the same name mentioned in
the Gostynin parish records.  Gostynin is 20 miles SW of Plock city, and
Koniecpol is between these two towns.  Looking deeper into my records I see
the Betcher/Boettcher name and also the Bielow/Bulow name in Gostynin parish
indexes.   This may be the area you are looking for.

I also think membership in SGGEE would be beneficial to you too.  You may find
some relatives amongst the membership.

Those are very nice photos on your website.  It took some doing but I finally
found Gozdy between Lipno and Sierpc.  Researchers in this area should
appreciate them.
