    In current city namelists, such as Find a Grave, Rhineland is nowspelled Reinland.  The city list in Family Tree Maker (Ancetry.com)does not have a Reinland or Rhineland in Manitoba.   I have reportedit under the spelling used in the birth record, as found on theManitoba Vital Statistics website and Ancestry.com.
