Ancestor Search - Juri BERGES


I am trying to find the birth record of my oldest know ancestor, Juri Berges. He moved to Sint Annaland, Zeeland, Netherlands and was married in the Dutch Reformed Church in 1760. The church record states he was born in Munchhausen.

Unfortunately there are at least six Munchhausens, four German, and two in Alsace, France.

I have found that Munchhausen, Oberschlesien is now Mnichow, Poland. Considering his name "Juri" seems to be slavik or Norwegian, I wonder if he may have been from this Munchhausen of more eastern Europe?

Does anyone have any information about Mnichow and what church may have existed here or nearby in about 1730 that I could contact for birth record?

Thank you.
