[Ger-Poland-Volhynia] Sompolno

Hi Michaelle,

The handwriting of the Sompolno Lutheran pastor of the mid 1800's has to be 
the worst ever.  However, the late Al Muth extracted most of the Polish 
language (to 1868) Sompolno records and some of the Russian language (post 
1868) records and they are in the SGGEE master pedigree database.  If you 
haven't already thoroughly searched that database, then doing so may turn up 
some results.

Sompolno Lutheran parish was founded in 1840.  Prior to that, Germans 
registered in the closest Catholic parish.  German names from some of these 
parishes north of Sompolno have also been extracted and entered in the 
master pedigree database.  What are the villages north of Sompolno where 
your Krauses lived?
