The Burski Family in the Birth/Baptismal Records from Gzy, Poland 1781-1842

I just finished searching the Birth/Baptismal Indexes for the parish of Gzy in Poland from 1781-1842 for the Burski surname and found forty records. After examining each record, I was able to establish the following family groups:

There is also a Maryanna Burska listed in the birth indexes as being born in 1829, but I could not find this record in order to discover who her parents were.

Now, I’m faced with the task of figuring out how all these family groups are related to each other.

Anna Burska was my fourth great-grandmother.  She was the daughter of my fifth great-grandparents, Bonawentura Burski and Helena Krzyczkowska. However, none of these three people appear in the Gzy birth/baptismal records from 1781-1842, since Anna Burska and all her siblings were born before 1781.
