I have resently been re-reading some information and found the following in 
the letter.  This letter was in regards to Augusta Dreger Schmidtke.

"Her parents were married in Przedecz in 1853 R18: 'Ludwig Dreger, age 18 
(R73 - 1834) born and living in Augustopol, son of Martin Dreger and 
Karoline Freigang, married Wilhelmine Krebs, age 20, born Studzien and 
living in Augustopol, daughter of Wilhelm Krebs and Emilie Springer.' 
Sometime after their marriage they lived in Krzepszew, Kutno Parish where 
two children were baptised, 1. 1858 R41 Wilhelm Dreger and 2. 1861 R41 Adolf 
Dreger.  I presume they then moved to Volhynia where Augusta was then born. 
I also note that Augusta died in Morris, Man.  I take it that she was 
related to the four Dreger sisters who married four Pokrant brothers at 
Rosenfeld, Man.  These Dregers again were related to the Dregers at 
Mossbank, Sask."

This would be my family line as the Adolf Dreger is my great grandfather. 
If anyone has a clue as to what the R numbers stand for would be helpful. 
While I have Draegers/Dregers on both sides of my maternal line, the Dregers 
at Mossbank are from my grandfathers side, while the Adolf Dregers as 
mentioned above are from my grandmothers side, and to date have found no 
relationship between the two.  Am also curious as to the relationship with 
the Pokrants at Rosenfeld.

Any assistance greatly appreciated.
Thank you
