I'm trying to find records for a Polish ancestor with this first name but not finding anything.  Thanks for any thoughts....

I kind of wonder which search engine doesn't know Blima and Bluma are the same name. The "u" and "i" (short "i") are often interchangeable in some Yiddish dialects - Polish being one of them.  So "Blima" is another way of pronouncing Bluma.  As are Blime[h] and Blume[h]
You may be entering an incorrect surname if you're "not finding anything".

When I entered "Blima" in JRI Poland, without  a surname, I found - literally - thousand and thousand of records.

Another name for Bluma is Flora
