I cannot help you with your specific request; however, there is a 
possibility that your Messerschmidt ancestors may have originated in 

A number of years ago I was researching some of my ancestors from 
Poland to Wurttemburg (specifically the parish of Dagersheim), and I 
recall seeing the Messerschmidt name quite often in the Dagersheim 
Lutheran records.  My ancestors (Hahn) moved from Wurttemburg to 
Poland (Gostynin Parish) about 1805.
