My Grandfather, Wilhlem Martins who was married to Maria Dueck, came to Canada as did all of their children except Isaac and Johann, who went to Brasil and Heinrich who was killed in the Soviet Union. Jacob, came to Canada first and changed his surname to Martynes. Then my father Wilhelm, Wilhelm Martins came in 1925 and changed his to Martynes. In 1930 Peter Martins and Gerard Martins came and changed theirs to Martynes. The rest of the family never changed their names.
