Wollin (Wolonia), Kreis Stolp, Pommern
Wollin was a very bigmanorial farm having hundreds of workers including many Remus family members. Now little of the manorial farm remains except the lovely estate house (gut) currently under renovation. Here are pictures.

The Puttkammer family of Pommern once owned the estate. This was a very big manorial farm often having hundreds of workers including many Remus family members. LikePodel, they generally attended the Lutheran church in Stowiecino although there also was a chapel on the estate. At the current moment, there is a Catholic chapel mostly likely on the location of the old Lutheran chapel. Here is a picture:
Some other records for these workers show up in other more distant churches likeGlowitz and Zezenow. Those villages are shown on the following map:
