At the very least, we know that the "c" at the end of a Polish word would 
usually be spelled "tz" by a German.  Vice versa is also true - Schultz = 
Shulc.  So there is a high probability that this is the right place.

We also know from SGGEE databases that there was a Haupt family living at 
Lazinska Kolonia (not too far from Grodziec but somewhat closer to Zagarow) 
including a Gottfried Haupt born there in 1836.  Further research would be 
required to determine if this was a fit for your family or not.

This area was part of South Prussia prior to 1806 when Napoleon marched 
through.  At the Congress of Vienna in 1815, it was turned over to Russia 
and became part of Congress / Russian Poland.

and Konin, see http://sggee.org/PolishLutheranArchives
