Grudziec Parish is south of Poznan. Krolikow (Christian Hoffmann was born here or in Krolikow near Gniesno) and Bialobloty (a Remus family was here) are located in Grudziec parish.

Grudziec is a large village originally with both Lutheran and Catholic churches. The Lutheran church was built in the 1840's (too late for Christian who left much earlier); it burned in 1985. The Catholic Church was 1896 so it is relatively recent too. Here are pictures of the churches as well as pictures of the village:
