I'm looking for information on my family from Czaple/Grosz Zappeln and Dolsk/Dulsk/Dulzig, both in Swiecie/Schwetz, West Prussia. They left for America in the late 1800s--they called themselves Zierott or Zieroth and I've also seen one spelling in 1772 of Zarott (Peter, head of household in Gr. Zappeln, Schwetz). I am also apparently related to Catharina Ristau and Regina Jeschke of that area.
Since I can't afford microfilms and can't seem to find much online that's free, can anyone help me? (Being from a tiny tiny village is both good and bad, it seems...haha)
Best, and thanks,
