I noticed someone posted something about Flatow now Zlotow a bit ago.  I know this is slightly out of the usual area, but I'm looking for where to look for film or on line resources for searching for births/deaths/marriages in this area.  The Meier(s) family -- my great grandparents came from here Augusta Marwahn -- born in Konigsdorf 1/13/1866, Emil Meier died in Schwente in 1902 -- Albert Emil Meier born in Schwente 10-20-1900,  Several other children born in Ossowo, now Osowo -- Hubert Herman Meier -- June 19, 1894.  I have Bertha Marwahn (sister of Augusta) born in Koenigsdorf 8-20-1848.  She married a Johann Prahl. 

Other names in the family -- Emelie and Caroline Belz -- maybe sisters.  Carl Hardke married Emelie Belz  -- April 24, 1868.  The family's last contact before coming to the U.S. in 1907 was Carl Hardke in Schwente, West Prussia.  I think Carl and Emlie were married in Krojanke. 

I have death records on all of the folks who came to the U.S. but I'd like to find some birth/baptism records and marriage records.  The were all Lutheran prior to coming to the U.S. 

Anyone know about any LDS films available or anything else?
