One thing which no one has mentioned but which might make a difference to your searches is that at that date there was no such place as Poland. Your ancestors were undoubtedly Polish by ethnicity, although some of the names sound Ukrainian, but at that time they would have been Germans by nationality. Posen was in Pommerania (Ger. Pommern) part of the German Empire and nowadays is Poznan in Poland, but still in the same place.
