I don't know if my family is related. My dad, Gerald August Philip K., DOB May 30, 1918, was the only son of Henry George K. and Gertrude Jansen, of Preston (now Cambridge)Ont. Henry's parents were Philip and Otily. Grandma Gertie told me the Von K's dropped the "Von" upon immigrating from Prussia (1860's?) after the birth of their 7th son. My dad had an uncle Wilfred K.(and Aunt Mary) in Kitchener, Ont.
