That's even better! You can get a good view of places from a Polish 
perspective by using www.pilot.pl for a map. For records related to 
Bialosliwie, you might try other Bydgoszcz regions like Wyrzysk. Naklo 
nad Noteccia (Nakel) would be great, but they don't have too many 
Catholic or Protestant records loaded online from there yet. You'll have 
to check the range of Lutheran records around Bydgoszcz to see if any of 
them are close to this region. I looked up the Boelter/Wirth marriage in 
the Poznan Marriage Project and clicked on "original record." It's in a 
Berlin Evangelical archive (moved during WWII??). You could write them 
for the full record and ask if they have any information on the parents.
