Hello Bernd, Have you tried the Poznan Project site of marriages?  If not, I would try that being Posen Germany in one of kreis's they were likely from.  

Petrich families in our area lived in Olmsted & Wabasha county in Minnesota and belonged to the German Lutheran churches in Bremen , Trinity Lutheran church 1st and then Emmanueal Lutheran church, Potsdam,MN 2nd ( both in Olmsted County on the boarder of Wabasha county) Unfortunately the Trinity church books were in fire two times & Emmanual has no Centennial book-they are very-very small farm towns.  I have the Centennial books of Plainview,Minnesota- Immanual Lutheran & Elgin,Minnesota- Trinity Lutheran  both in Wabasha county .  Olmsted County Historical Society may be able to be of help & there is findagrave which does have Potsdam's cemetery on it. 

( my fathers ancestors Mietzner , Fedder & Heyn of kreis Kolmar,Posen Germany & Rossin of kreis Mogilno,Posen Germany, used both of those old churches before using Plainview & Elgin churches.) If they are a part of your Petrich branch.   Cathy in Elgin,Minnesota

Hello Louis,

the grandmother of my grandfather was Friederike Petrich, born 1843 in Gaj. 
Her parents have been Ludwig Petrich and Karoline Makus. Friederike Petrich 
married Gottlieb Michael Pydde 15. November 1864 in Brzeziny (Loewenstadt). 
I don't know, from where my Petrich's came to Poland.

Do you have more Petrich-records to look if there is any connection to my 

Thanks and regards
Bernd Engelhorn
