I was trolling for information on a cousin in my mother's family and stumbled upon your message about Kusches in Canada. My Grandfather had one or two brothers who went to Canada I believe, but we have never been able to find a link. I wonder if this might be the one. Some of the names in your Kusches are the same or similar to our family. My grandfather was Edward Karl Kusch, his father was Samuel Kusch and my GG grandfather was also Samuel who emigrated to the USA from Germany. Some of the Kusches were "Volga Deutch" from White Russian settlements along the Volga River, I don't have any information about the family in particular, only the tradition. Do you or your family have relatives in the USA?
