Have you searched in the Lublin parish records database yet? Search here for births, marriages and deaths separately: https://www.sggee.org/research/parishes/lublin_records/lublinsearchinstruct.html

You will find the marriage of a Bloch, Gustav to a Falkenburg and the births of several children to them. The marriage record provides the names of the parents and will be helpful to you IF this is the brother to your August Bloch. Many families moved between the Lublin area and Volhynia and then immigrated to North America later.

You may email me directly if you have any other questions. The records may be ordered from the church in Lublin and there are instructions on the website about how to do that.

Subject: [Ger-Poland-Volhynia] Bloch

My mother was a Bloch and I have so little information about the Bloch 
ancestors that I am  really at a standstill.
I don't know enough to be able to make any connections.
The very common name doesn't help!

So I'm throwing this out on the off chance that someone will see it who 
will be able to provide a clue.

My grandfather's father was August Bloch who was married to Emelie 
Stebner Matschulat (Matschulat from her first marriage)

I  looked at the index of marriage records  and August Bloch's marriage 
is listed. But it seems there is no full record on film.
I know even less about my grandfather's mother Emilie Stebner.

The only sibling I know about is Gustav Bloch ( married a Falkenburg) 
who was born 1849 in Poland and died in 1895   in Volhynia.
My Grandfather Theodor was born in Dorofejewka in 1891.

Children of Gustav and August moved to the area around Edmonton. They 
were Lutheran.
My mother told me that she had Bloch cousins in North Dakota  and they 
were Baptist.

Any ideas about how to proceed with so little information?
