I'm very interested in something John Marsch recently wrote regarding
marriages at Trinity - Lodz between Catholics and Lutherans:

"Another interesting  tid-bit that I noticed, many of the Catholic men had
come to Lodz from Tschechei (now the Czech Republic), likely to work in the
textile industry for which Lodz was famous at the time."

Does anyone know more about those who left "Tschechei" to come to Lodz?
When did they leave?  Did they only leave to seek jobs in the growing
textile industry in Lodz, or was there another reason?  If there were
Catholics who married in Lutheran churches, does that mean they converted
to Lutheranism?
