       I think the place names you have are close, but not exactly

      The first place looks like Jannewitz, Schlawe (I'm not sure
  what to do with the "Lukon" - do you know which document the
  place name came from?).  If you look up Jannewitz on
  kartenmeister.com you will find the e-mail addresses of some
  likely relatives - there's someone looking for GARBE and ROSIN,
  someone else (with a German address) looking for ROSIN.

  Kartenmeister is at
  let me know if you have trouble finding the addresses.

      The second place will be Pl"otzig, Rummelsburg (an umlaut - 2 dots -
  over the o).  Ploetzig was in the parish Pritzig, Rummelsburg,
  and most of the birth, death and confirmation books for that
  parish are in the Polish state archive in Koszalin. Unfortunately
  there's a big gap in the marriage records. You could try contacting
  the archive, Archiwum Panstwowe w Koszalin for Amelia Cecilia Rosin's
  birth record, if you don't have it already.

       I hope some of this is new to you,

              Paul Rakow
