Zamarte is a village associated with the Michael Remus family of Polnitz. Just prior to 1772, Michael Remus moved to Okiersk and his eldest son Jacob moved to Zamarte (which is near to Okiersk). Jacob later moved to Okiersk, perhaps as his parents aged or died. Click here for this family.

Also in this village were Johan Remus (first wife Anna Szweda and second wife Elisabeth Chelmoswka) and children, all descendents of Paul Remus and Veronica Zmich. These were the ancestors of Johan Remus of Ceksyn. Click here for this family.

This village's birth, marriages, and deaths were recorded in the Church book of Ceksyn. Here is a picture of the pretty village on a hill.
