Gustav Menke - B. 1884 Alexandria, Volhynia. Came to Neche, ND via Winnipeg 1900. 
Maria Menke - B. 1885 Mariendorf, Volhynia - according to family she stayed there, never immigrated. 
Johann Manke - B. 1879 Mariendorf, Volhynia - He also did not immigrate to ND that we know of. 
Gustav is my great-grandfather....
The above are all children of:
Christoph Menke - B. ~ 1831 in ? 
Emilie Brandt - B. ~ 1854 in ? (both immigrated to Neche, ND in 1908 and 1910. Ship records show Christoph came with Natalie Menke. They came from Libau to Winnipeg to Neche. Emilie came with 2 youngest boys Adam and Friedrich via Ellis Island).

Do you have approximate birth dates for these people.  When did they arrive in Canada?

Hello All!

I have not posted here in a long time. Greetings to all! I have not forgotten you or the mission....just so busy!

If anyone has any information on the family of Gustav Menke, Christoph Menke (married to Emilie Brandt) or Johann Manke (same family, spelled both ways), from the Alexandria / Tutschin / Rowno area of Volhynia - I would appreciate it. 

I have a lot of information from the time they arrived in Winnipeg, and then Neche, North Dakota, but looking for more from when they were in Russia (Ukraine).
