Luise is definitely found in Chodecz Lutheran church records as you indicate.  I have photocopies of the indexes from the Chodecz films.

   Hello gwilson,

       I'm not quite clear from your mail what the connection
   to Lanieta is - does the Chodecz film give Lanieta as the birth
   place? (We don't know your family as well as you do.)

      The Lanieta records you are looking at on-line are the Civil
   records for the Catholic parish of Lanieta. (They are now kept
   in the archive in Lodz, but are not connected to Lodz in any
   other way). Even though they are Catholic records, I do see
   one or two German surnames each year, so its possible you might
   find something there. The quick way to check is to look at the
   final page or two of each section, which has a surname index.

       Probably most of the Germans from Lanieta would show up
   in the Chodecz Protestant records instead. From the catalogue,
   I think the LDS films are the Chodecz church records (are they
   in German?).  I would expect that the Pastor in Chodecz originally
   kept two sets of records:  church records, and civil records in
   Polish - but the only Protestant Chodecz records I can find are the
   ones on the LDS microfilm.
