Yes, there was a Grodno parish, founded in the 1790s,
serving the city Grodno, some nearby villages, and the more
distant towns Slonim, Isabellin, and Czollo.
Sorry - I see that sentence below wasn't written as clearly
as it should have been. E.H. Busch was the author of several
books about the Lutheran congregations in Russia and Poland -
describing their history, and geography, and size. (Google Books
says the author was "von Busch" - but looking at the cover pages,
I now think he was probably just plain Busch).
Anyway, what I was trying to say, is that (according to
Friedrich Julius Hoffmann was Pastor in Grodno from 1843 onwards.
Busch's books would give you several pages
of general information about the parish. What is your
interest - which places and dates?
I don't know about church records of BMD - I'll have a quick
check to see if I can find anything.
