Old Lutherans near Grünberg

Good Evening,

I am searching for records relating to several Old Lutheran families (Altmann from Schloin, Nitschke from Janny, Klauber from Prittag) who resisted the common agenda enforced on the Lutheran and Reformed Churches from about 1817. This factor eventually led to their emigration to Australia. From what I understand, baptisms and marriges were conducted by their own pastors who were 'separatists'. Does anyone know of church records for "Old Lutherans" say in the Grünberg area?

Many thanks

Barry Krueger
