Beatrix, this is a long shot but I assume you are looking for where your
Henrietta Reinke came from.  I have two in the Michalki Parish.  One
Henrietta Reinke was born in 1855 in Plociczno, Zuromin, Mazowieckie to
parents Michal Reinke and Charlotta Anklam.  The other was born in 1865 in
the same village to August Reinke and Justyna Steinfort.  Some of the
families in Michalki Parish moved to Volhynia and some families passed
through the area on their way there, stopping only long enough to be
mentioned in the Church books.  I have a total of 22 Reinkes at this parish
between 1810 and 1865.

According to the EWZ index, my great grandmother was born in Brachlin,
Marienwerder. I checked the West Prussia gazetteer but the only Brachlin I
found was southwest of Marienwerder in Kreis Schwetz by Topolno.  That seems
awfully far from Marienwerder. My dad thinks that she was born in an area
north of Marienwerder, closer to Malbork. Has anyone ever come across
another Brachlin?
After people filled out their EWZ papers, did an official correct spelling
mistakes or geographical errors?

It might be helpful if I actually mentioned the name of the person I'm
looking for. Her name is Henriette Reinke born 1860.  Her family moved to
Heimthal parish sometime after that and in 1881 she married August Kitzmann
and settled in Tortshin, Wolodarsk.  

I'm following another clue. I know that August Kitzmann had a sister named
Justine. I found a Justine Kitzmann who married a Johann Reinke in Heimthal
on Feb 12 1879.  I know it was common in those days for two siblings from
one family to marry two siblings from another. I'm guessing there is a
connection there. Justine Kitzmann is a surprisingly common name though so I
can't just assume she is my Justine.

Any Reinke's from Heimthal here?
