Hi Stacy,

Most of the surnames you list are familiar to me from indexing parish 
records for the Lublin Project. Search here: 

People from the areas both south and north of Lublin, Poland often 
passed through on their way to Volhynia (western Ukraine today) or 
decided to stay and settle. There's a good deal of information provided 
in the index we volunteers created. Unfortunately, you cannot order 
records from the church at this time. Use Soundex when searching because 
spellings can vary. Remember to check Fregin for Fergin and Schmidtke 
for Schmidt (these surnames were often interchanged).

Let me know if you have any questions.
I hope you find some "hits" for your family.
