When I first read your email I thought you were referring to Novgorad,
Russia, near St. Petersburg.  But there is also a Novogrod near Lipno/Rypin
and the Rienas and Hammermeister names are common in that area.  If you are
referring to the area near Rypin then I'd like to get more information on
the Poland dates and names that you have.  I may be able to help you with

family????????Zhitomir to Alberta 

Hi. ?I'm trying to trace the children of Samuel RENAS who was b. Aug 10, 
1836 in Poland (according to the census records) and married in Zhitomir Sep

26, 1880, possibly to Marie WINTER. ?I believe he had a brother Ludwig who 
probably stayed in the old country (his daughter, Amelia RIENAS- 1863-1940 
m. Johann HAMMERMEISTER in Zhitomir Nov 25, 1879; they were my 
great-grandparents.) ?Samuel RENAS(64), wife Marie(51), sons Gustav(18) and 
Teodor(16), daughter Emilie (13; went on to marry Louis WEISS and move to 
Puyallup, I think) and Adoline(10) and Arnoldt(6) lived a couple households 
away from my grandparents in Colchester at the time of the 1901 census. ?I 
believe he had a son Wilhelm emigrate after him and also settle in Canada. 
I have a lead that they possibly came from Novgorad, which matches up with 
were *my* HAMMERMEISTERs also came from. ?I am hoping for some more clues 
about this branch of the family. ?I will gladly share what little I know, or

think I know.
