[Ger-Poland-Volhynia] Blochs of Wloclawek/Chodesz areas

It appears Gottlieb Bloch and Anna Marianne Schimming's children were born in Durlaty and registered in Chodecz Lutheran church records.
Rosine Thiede's home parish probably was Wloclawek, hence the marriage with Gottlieb in this church.
But I suspect their home was in Durlaty within Chodecz parish..

I have copies of the hand written indexes from the filmed Chodecz church records.

I see an  August Bloch, registered as birth #122 in 1860 birth indexes. This would be found on Film #813114.  IF this is the August you cite in your message, then the link is made.

There are Bloch children records in each year until 1865 inclusive.  Unfortunately the LDS did not finish filming Chodecz records after that year, but the records are in the Wloclawek Archives.

  I believe I have found my great great grandparents in the SGGEE records, but cannot be certain because I can find no record of their children including my great grandmother.

  SGGEE shows Gottlieb Bloch (b 1819) marrying Rosine Thiede (b 1838) in Wloclawek, Poland in 1858.  It was second marriage for both; Gottlieb being married to Anna Marianne Schimming on 1838 with whom he had 7 children, Anna Karoline, Johann, Gottfried, Eufrosine, Anna Juliane, Gottlieb, and Luise.  Rosine was previously married to Johann Stoek 1856 who apparently died within a year with no children.

  What I know from my family history is that a Rosalie Thiede (or Feidde in some papers) was born in about 1837 in Poland.  She had three children with a Gottfried or Gottlieb Bloch somewhere in Poland or Russia: August (b 1860), Ottilie (b 1869), and my great grandmother, Augusta (b 1870).  Eventually a Rosine/Rosalie Bloch married a Johann Zwingelberg (previously married to Henriette Geske/Heske) in Volhynia according to the St. Petersburg records in 1883.  My great grandmother Augusta Bloch married Herman Zwingelberg, son of Johann Zwingelberg in 1892.  By this time the Blochs and Zwingelbergs were in Volhynia.  The Zwingelbergs originally came from the Koenigsberg area of East Prussia.  All of these family members eventually settled in eastern South Dakota or Minnesota by 1896 to 1905.

  So the timing of my Rosine/Rosalie Thiede and Gottlieb Bloch certainly seems to fit, but I'd like some connection to the Rosine of the SGGEE records.

  Does anyone have any information about these families that might help connect them?

  Feel free to send information to list or contact me directly.
