Nice to hear back from you. I am very familiar with the book about the Rosthern area history. Many branches of my tree are all over that book. One of them is related to the Malinowsky family. One of my grandmothers sisters married a Otto Malinowsky and he changed his family name to Malin at some point. You may find that there was a name change like this in order to "fit in" and Anglicize the family name. My GG grandfather was Philipp Krikau (Krickau) and he was one of the early settlers that brought a school, a church and the hospital to Rosthern. His wife was Katherine Kinzel who was a sister to A.C. Kinzel who also was responsible for the the school etc. along with the others. On the other side my fathers people are Knuth, Markwart, Bredlaw and others. Have you checked on the "Kenmare" school story? If your family was part of the Arma people you may find a trail there. Kenmare was a made up name derived from the above noted families. I have a mystery myself that I have not been able to solve. My Grandfather was a Schutt and he was a hired man for the Knuth's and I have no idea when he or how this came to pass. He married one of the Knuth daughters and I have not been able to find any info on him anywhere except one small reference in the Rosthern history about the marriage. By the way where do you live now? I would like to keep in touch with you off the message board. My email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
