Different Czirr spellings

I have hit a "brick wall" with my family lines in what was once Prussia. It appears that CZIRR, DAMASKE, RUPPEL, and GERMER all came from that region but I have a difficult time finding resources to search in to document my family.

So, can anyone tell me if CZIRR is an Americanized version of something else? Are there other spellings for this name which would be more common? My gggggrandfather is Heinrich Czirr b. 1 Apr 1822 and married Henrietta Krause Abt 1848. Heinrich had my ggggrandfather, Herman Ludwig in 1851, in Schojow, Stolp, Pomerania, Prussia (now called Schonau, Slupsk, Pommern or Pomorskie, Preussen) (sorry about my horrible spelling as I don't know German or Polish). What resources are available to me during that period? And where do I find them? (Most of my lines stop once they emigrated to America--I can't find them in Europe.)

Thanks for your help in advance. (I'm happy to share the info for the rest of my above-mentioned lines if they are names of interest to anyone. Email me if interested.)
