Żelechowa is a municipal neighbourhood of the city of Szczecin (Stettin), Poland situated on the left bank of Oder river, north of the Szczecin Old Town and Middle Town. As of January 2011 it had a population of 13,971.
1945 when Stettin was a part of Prussia, the German name of this suburb
was Stettin-Zūllchow. From 1818 untill 1939 Zülchow belonged to the Prussian county Kreis Randow, Regierungsbezirk Stettin (Stettin regency). In 1827 the village Züllchow had 211 inhabitants. The name Żelechowa was officially introduced in
1946, replacing the German name Züllchow.
My maternal ancestor Johann Christian Friedrich Hehmke died in Züllchow, Kreis Randow.
