[Ger-Poland-Volhynia] Intro & SGGEE questions.

I should probably rephrase and say I haven't found any villages whose names match the spelling I have. I have found several villages in the gazetteers that have names similar to the ones I'm looking for, Targewek, and Helendry Schelsuzkie.
The one I can't find anywhere is Gretpuin. It's possible I'm making an assumption and Gretpuin isn't the name of a town or village. I'm taking the information from a 1952 copy of a marriage record. It's not the actual marriage record; it's a form with the information filled in. The marriage was in 1861. The groom's birthplace is listed as Targewek bei Gretpuin, and the bride's is listed as Helendry Schelsuzkie bei Gretpuin. I took that to mean those were very small villages and Gretpuin was the closest larger town/village. I have tried all of your gazetteers and the SGKP, and can't find anything that looks like it could be Gretpuin.
Thanks for your interest,

What are the names of the village?

Yes, it was the searchable index I was talking about. Thanks
for the explanation, and my sympathies on the problems the move
has caused. I didn't have any problem searching the individual
gazetteers. I just wanted to use the searchable index too so I
didn't leave any stones unturned -- I have a couple of village
names that I have yet to find anywhere. :-)
