Hello Cousin Sally,

I am just transcribing the Russian Stawiszyn records and could find the 
marriage of

Wilhelm Leske *abt. 1872 in Stary Borowiec, Grodziec
son of Gottfried Leske and Christine Steinbrenner
Jan. 30, 1895 in Stawiszyn
1895, page 186, # 16
Rosine Kanwischer *abt. 1879 Zamety, Kalisz
daughter of Gottfried Kanwischer and Karoline Grunwald

I was not sure about the spelling of Kanwischer. It derives of Kannenwischer 
= Flaschenbürste = bottle brush and is a jocular term for a person of a 
short stature. But the pastor almost wrote Kanwischer and sometimes 
Kahnwischer and there are still Kanwischers living today.

I have only been looking for the Janott surname and some Laube in the 
Grodziec online records, to help other researchers. Unfortunatelly there are 
many gaps in the church book stocks. I first want to finish my Stawiszyn 

Greetings from Germany,
