Valentine Hopfinger/Hoffinger who played for the Chicago Blackhawks was my great uncle! His father was Michael Hopfinger from Selz, Kutschurgan, Odessa, Russia and homesteaded in Salvador, Saskatchewan.
I think that John David is related to the Hopfingers of North and South Dakota, too.
And Pauline Leibel Reinbold is a cousin of my Grandfather.!
