      The genealogy that my cousin did is extremely detailed, as far as the
      descendants of my g-g-grandfather are concerned. What I'm interested
      in is mainly information on his generation and those before. The
      information my cousin had was scant at best - I know his and his
      wife's names, her maiden name and where they were born. Of their
      parents, brothers and sisters, all there are are a few names and
      speculation. He also found a reference to the Gladis name going back
      to 1348 (in a German coat-of-arms book published in 1878). I'm not
      quite up to going that far back in time, but it at least gives me a
      distant target.

      There are also some gaps in the tree that need filling - I've been
      contacted by a Gladis living in Kosice who is very interested in
      knowing where he fits into the larger tree. Once I know what I'm
      looking for, I can probably ask him to do some legwork as well. I've
      sent email to the Maly Lipnik editor of tccweb.com in the hopes that
      he might have information as well.
