I just started working on my BICH line who migrated to Kulm, Bessarabia
from Poland and am having some difficulties on locating villages.
I have a couple of different villages from different sources shown as the
birthplace of my ancestor, Jakob BICH born 18 January, 1779.
From the Stumpp book: Lentschutz, Kalish, Poland
Lentschitz, Lowicz, Poland
From the Kulm, Bessarabia Family Buch: what looks like either Sgrosow or
From the Kulm, Bessarabia Death Record: Lentschutz, Polen
From the AHSGR Ged Files: Strozowska, Rzeszowskiego, Poland (no source
His son Michael BICH was born 19 February, 1808, according to all the
records I have found for him in Semlin, Poland.
Lentschutz I have been able to locate, is present day Leczyca. I have
searched the Catholic records for Leczyca (found them online) with no
results. I have not however, been able to find any Lutheran records from
1779 for Leczyca and I am unsure where the parish seat would have been for
Leczyca in 1779. Years ago I spoke with Jerry Frank via email who
suggested at that time that I look at the Ilow Lutheran records, and one
question I have is if anyone knows of an online source for those records.
The next question would be, does anyone have any suggestions for
locations/current town names for Sgrosow/Strosow? I have located
Strozowska, Rzeszowkiego, and since it is quite a long distance east from
Leczyca, I am unsure of that location, however will consider it as
Third, I have found that there is a Semlin, now known as Zamlynie,
Korczew, Wojslawice, Sieradz, Lodz. I found Catholic birth records for a
Zamłynie in Kielce for the right time period, nothing found in them.
Would anyone have a suggestion for any online records for Zamlynie or the
Lutheran parish for that village and/or any other suggestions for the
location of Semlin?
I appreciate any help and suggestions on locating birth records for both
Jakob and Michael.
