To the list,

While trolling for information on *Gotthard L. Maron,* a German immigrant
who arrived from Berlin ca. 1890 and lived in Winnipeg til his death in
1931, I found this family website from  East Prussia which had over 4000
names, some of which have Wolhynian connections, sadly, none of mine
although many are familiar ones in Wolhynia:


Regrettably, the website is in German only, but if you can find something
familiar, perhaps the trail will lead somewhere. Some of the listings also
had connections to Illinois

Maron was the publisher of *Der Nordwesten* newspaper (later Kanada Kurier)
from 1913-1920 as well as president of the German Society of Winnipeg on
several occaions, and was the western manager for  North German Lloyd which
brought so many Germans to Canada.

Hope some of the Uckermarck website helps.
