The online 19th century gazetteer of Poland names only two villages
named Pinino.  See
There are tools all over the internet for English speakers to interpret
the entries in Polish.  This is the most basic of tools for conducting
place research in the historical boundaries of Poland.

To use the gazetteer, you must know how to spell in Polish, learn
how letters alphabetize in Polish, AND be able to input correctly spelled
place-names IN POLISH, using a tool such as http://polish.typeit.org/
and copying the spelling into a search box.  (Oh my, the sacrifices one has
to make to do genealogy in Russian Poland.  JUST DO IT!)

For Pinino, this is unnecessary.

One village is in the powiat of Nieszawa. The Catholic parish would be
You do not need this now, but it may become necessary prior to the founding
of the local Lutheran parish, which is Nieszawa itself.  This Pinino is
located at 52°49' N 18°37'
is located 19.1 km. due West of Nieszawa.

The other village named Pinino is in the powiat of Rypin. The Catholic
would be Żałe.  The briefest familiarity with the bigger names points to
Michałki Evangelical church. The surname Reinholz is not in the
birth indices for the 1850 time frame.

The records for Evangelical Nieszawa were never microfilmed, but are
available in the Toruń archives branch at Włocławek.  There are several
of us looking forward to when these records will be digitized and go online
at the http://www.szukajwarchiwach.pl/ website.  Unfortunately, there
is no timetable stating when this will happen, but hopefully, in the next
few years.
