The Landsberg records are in German Archives.  See the following from the Library Catalog.  But these filmed records may not cover the time period you need.

  Hello all,

  I am having difficulty in finding a birth record for my Great-Grandmother,
  Elizabeth Conrad.  We have her birth recorded as October 12, 1895 in
  "Germany."  The date is on several death announcements etc. from when she
  passed in 1968.  The family had an old map of Germany with Landsberg Warthe
  (Gorzów Wielkopolski) circled and it has been verbally passed down that this
  is the town where she was born.  Several census reports show Germany as
  their birthplace, although one census has Posen crossed out and Germany
  written in...  Another clue is that her name and her parents, Anna and Emil
  Conrad, appear in an address book for 1913 for Landsberg although Anna and
  Elizabeth emmigrated in June 1913.

  When I queried the Polish archives for the area to look up information on
  this family with the birth date provided, they found nothing!  I do not know
  which parish they belonged to in Landsberg but I assume they were all
  referenced in the archive's search?  The Ellis Island web site does not link
  properly to the original ship manifest so I am unable to check that source
  for reference to a town name and I do not have a subscription to
  ancestry.com at the moment to pull down the immigration record.  Is it
  possible that these Lutheran records for Landsberg are not at the Polish
  state archives?  The only other reason I could think of is that the family
  moved into Landsberg between 1896 and 1900 and the record resides in another

  Does anyone have any ideas how I may be able to trace Elizabeth Conrad and
  her family?  Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
