Post Posted: Tue Feb 17, 2009 4:42 pm      Post subject: Szczepinski - Nowa Cerkiew Help
Reply with quote

I am currently researching the surname Szczepinski. Records I have found on "Pomorskie Towarzystwo Genealogiczne" indicate the last known location of my gggrandfather to be "Neukirch bei Stargard" which I researched to be "Nowa Cerkiew" Checking for film on LDS -http://www.familysearch.org/eng/library/fhlcatalog/supermainframeset.asp?display=localityhitlist&columns=*%2C0%2C0&PLACE=nowa+cerkiew&PARTOF=&prePLACE=nowa+cerkiew&prePARTOF= - there are 3 "Nowa Cerkiew" listed. I am quite sure that "Nowa Cerkiew (Nowy Dwor Gdanski)" is the proper one for me to research in. However, when I google the same information I get "Nowa Cerkiew (Tczew)" Are these two places the same or in close proximity to one another? Any advice appreciated. I have been able to find my ggrandfathers birth record (Thomas Szczepinski b. 2 Dec 1864 Nowa Cerkiew) but not having any luck with his fathers info. I did find Jacob Szczepinski m. 1858 to Marianna Glenska but no other leads. Any help locating info will be greatly appreciated. Hope I haven't confused the issue too much!

Richard,

As you wrote there are three different Nowa Cerkiew in Pomerania, plus one Nowa Cerekwia Silesia (also old German Neukirch, or translated from Polish "New Orthodox church"):

- Nowa Cerkiew, Chojnice county, Chojnice borough
- Nowa Cerkiew, Tczew county, Morzeszczyn borough
- Nowa Cerkiew, Nowy Dwór Gdański county, Ostaszewo borough
- Nowa Cerekwia, Glupczye county, Kietrz borough

Click below for maps and direction of all four:

And Silesian: http://tinyurl.com/c6pyma


If your gggrandfather was from "Neukirch bei Stargard" it is most probably the Nowa Cerkiew, Tczew county, Morzeszczyn borough located the nearest to Stargard Gdanski, about 12 miles only ( map: http://tinyurl.com/d952vg )

In 19th century in this Nowa Cerkiew there was a catholic church and parish seat.

Hope it helps a little Smile
