Rosmin (Roscmin), Kreis Wirsitz, Posen

Rosmin, Kreis Wirsitz is a village south of Vandsburg that in the 1750's contained several Remus families as well as related families like that of Jacob Moddelmog. It is lovely village on a lake that looks like quite a nice place to live. Here is a picture of the 20th century Evangelical church, now a Catholic Church:
