Rose and Paul, thank you. Yes, Luise Kitzmann was born 3 Aug 1849 in Lanieta. It is on the LDS film I previously mentioned. I was just confused as to why I was finding Lanieta records for Chodecz and Lodz. I was told by someone else that there was a Lanieta in Chodecz and also one in Lodz., two different cities. I am still very confused about what Parish to look in when it comes to these old records. I keep trying and trying but just can't get it straight.

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

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.
