 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.

 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.
