Steinwald oder Steinwalde?

I think that my great-grandparents came from the town of Steinwald, which today is in Germany, and went to East Prussia as settlers, there was the village of Steinwalde near Königsberg. I see that you have a lot of geneological experience. I am asking for guidance as to how to find confirmation of my assumptions in the documents.
Ich glaube, meine Urgroßeltern stammten aus der Stadt Steinwald, die heute in Deutschland liegt, und gingen als Siedler nach Ostpreußen, dort war das Dorf Steinwalde bei Königsberg. Ich sehe, dass Sie über viele genetische Erfahrungen verfügen, und bitten Sie um Anleitung, wie Sie meine Annahmen in den Dokumenten bestätigen können.

Hallo Jack,
meines Wissens gibt es im heutigen Deutschland keine Gemeinde die Steinwald heißt. In Ostpreussen gibt es:

Steinwalde ist der deutsche Name folgender Ortschaften in Ostpreußen (Woiwodschaft Ermland-Masuren):

Krzyżany (Steinwalde, bis 1927 Krzysahnen im Landkreis Lötzen)
Piłaki Wielkie (Steinwalde im Landkreis Angerburg)

Aber ohne Nachname und eine zeitliche Eingrenzung wirst Du wenig Daten bekommen.

Hello Jack,
as there are many locations (forest-districts) called Steinwald in Germany and Austria and as your link is only describing a single farm in Mecklenburg-Strelitz speculations seem to be less promising.
Are your assumptions based on narrations or documents? Are you in possession of certifikates (birth, marriage, death) of your great-grandparents (issued were and when?)?

What are you preferential trying to find out: your further ancestors or the Polish family history of your great-grantparents?

Gonsken. Znalazłem coś dla Ciebie w zapisie Gonsken:

- chrzest Jana Stone Forest, 25/08/1862 (KB 901, str 396, nr 78.), Dzingellen
Rodzice: Martin Stone Forest / Sophia Lipiński;
- chrzest Mathes Steinwald, 25.11.1864 (KB 901, str. 420, nr 144), Dzingellen,
rodzice: Martin Steinwald / Sophia Lipinski (myślę, że to trochę błąd);
- chrzest Luise Steinwald, 24.09.1867, (KB 901, s. 445, nr 86), Dzingellen.
Rodzice: Martin Steinwald / Maria Pychlo:

I did everything according to your advice but unfortunately in this place I did not find anything that would refer to the name Steinwald :)
