Surnames: Pietsch, Felker, Fritsch, Konecki, etc..
Margaret Felker Pietsch was my 2nd great grandmother. She married Albert Pietsch, Sr. This family was from Glasendorf Germany/Silesia, Germany. Albert and his children came to the US in about 1892 and settled in Chicago, IL. She had passed away and of course did not come to America but we have no information about her. Albert did remarry a women named Carolina. Anyone with information please contact me.

You certainly mean Gläsendorf in Silesia, but there are several. I've found this info on a board:

In Niederschlesien (Lower Silesia)
Gläsendorf = Szklarnia, Kreis Habelschwerdt
Gläsendorf = Szklary, Kreis Frankenstein
Gläsendorf = Szklarnia, Kreis Glatz
In Oberschlesien (Upper Silesia)
Gläsendorf = Szklary, Kreis Grottkau
Münsterberg = Ziebice, Kreis Frankenstein

Kreis is something like district.

You'd better post your query on a Polish board and/or the board for Historical regions --> Silesia

More and more Polish archives put their church records online. Maybe someone can give you a direction how to proceed.

Good luck,
