I just found out about this book the other day.  Does anyone have this book or access to it?  I found the below information on the Ancestry message boards.  It sounds like it could be informative for some of us.  I am interested to know if it has anything more on my 4th grt grandmother Elizabeth Lenz who married Andreas Neumann 26 Oct 1803 in Lubsin Radziejow, Kujawsko-Pomorski, Poland.  I know Karl used to be a member but is no longer.  I have tried contacting him via email but haven't heard back from him.
