Local heritage book of Bukowce und Bucharzewo
BUKOWCE (Bokufze, Bokutze, Treuenwalde), poln. Bukowiec and BUCHARZEWO (Bucharschewo, Bukorczewe, Hundeshagen) poln Bucharzewo are two small settlements right side of the river Warthe, northeast of Zirke (Sierakow) im Kreis Birnbaum, Provinz Posen. Today these are combined under Bucharzewo, but the parish book entries show them as separate entities. Bucharzewo has a small village center, but Bukowce now consists of scattered farms and houses in a wooded area. Both are very close to the river Warthe, which had much barge traffic due to the Zirke cloth makers, the glas factory and the horse breeding farm for the military.
Neighboring parishes were Birnbaum, Neustadt/Pinne, Orzeschkowo, Wronke, Schneidemühlchen, There also was a catholic church in Zirke which is not included here. In the protestant parish register there are at times notes that an event occurred in the catholic church, i.e. it may be useful to search this as well.
The Zivilstandsregister (civil registration) Zirke starts at 1874, is divided into city and rural district 1874-1879, thereafter all entries are under city. This has not all been transcribed yet.
These data are not complete yet, and are actively being worked on with regular updates. This is part of a larger project in the Kreis Birnbaum, with the entire dataset on GEDBAS, which includes surrounding villages. https://gedbas.genealogy.net/person/database/42790
