I was surprised to read your response below to Vera.
I don’t mean to butt in here, but this is the first I’ve heard of a Grodno parish.
Can you tell me where I can get more information on this parish? Are there records?
And, am I understanding you correctly that Von Busch was the pastor of Grodno parish?

Thank you!
