why does a search by name and search by bbox not find the same point?

If you look at the results of this URL:
{URL#1}
http://gov.genealogy.net/search/name?name=Schwenkfeld

You will find 4 results .. the one I am interested in is the following:
GOV-id = object_189823
name = Schwenkfeld, Makowice
Lat/Lon = 50.825,16.545


..

This bbox search returns nothing:
{URL#2}
http://gov.genealogy.net/search/bounding…hEast=16.554103


These points are a proper bbox around the Lat/Lon point above..right?
Upper-Left ("NorthWest") = (50.828379,16.536922)
Lower-Right ("SouthEast") = (50.821922,16.554103)

Why does URL #2 not return that point that URL #1 does? Am I doing something wrong with my bounding box search?

Thanks.
