Lutheran records for the parish of Lipno are held by the Polish State
Archives for the period 1808-1901, and have been filmed by the LDS up to
1865.  Newer records are probably still held by the Lipno town authorities.
Therefore, it is surprising to me that the birth record of Michael Dill
(born in Komorowo abt. 1825) could not be found by the researcher.  Have you
looked into the filmed records yourself?

I completely agree with Al Muth that in order to proceed further, you must
find the marriage record for Michael Dill and Elisabeth Schwarzrok.  That
marriage must have taken place sometime between 1811 and 1825, and should
also be in the Lutheran records of Lipno if they were married there.
However, it was customary that marriages took place near the bride's home,
and as there was a Schwarzro(c)k family in Gnojno, it might not be such a
long shot at all to look into the Catholic records of Bobrowniki.

Good luck with your research.
