Church Records Alt Limmritz

I have an ancestor whose emigration record states an origin of "Limmritz/Sternberg" (1854). If my research is correct that equates to "Alt Limmritz" in the district of Sternberg which today would be "Lemierzyce, Poland". I am trying to determine if the LDS church would hold records for this area but cannot seem to find it in a "place search" of their catalog. Any ideas of where I might find these records or a locale to use in searching for this area?

Thanks in advance!

Hi "KappFamily",

hopefully someone will be along soon with precise information for you, but if you can read german, these two links may be give you some useful general inforation about Limmritz:

http://wiki-de.genealogy.net/Alt_Limmritz
http://wiki-de.genealogy.net/Kreis_Oststernberg

you can find more sites by entering alt limmritz neumark in a search engine, but they are mostly in german and polish. Beware also of links to a Limmritz in Saxony.

regards,
Bob

Thanks, Bob.
I had already fallen into the Limmritz, Saxony trap and it was actually those pages (and Google Translate :D ) that got me this far. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find reference to films for this area. I was hoping that someone knew how the films would be categorized for this area and if they would be held in a German or Polish archive. I will try the searches with Neumark as well.
