      I know I was out of the loop for a bit, but now that I'm getting back
      into this research in a big way, I'm finding some frustration and
      hope someone can help....

      I sent an inquiry off to Archivex in the Czech Republic on 1 Dec
      2004, about 10 days later I got a letter saying they no longer
      handled inquiries but would forward it to the appropriate archive. (I
      was looking for more information based on a previous study of my
      Silhavy's etc in the Mecholupy area).

      Today I got a letter in Czech , which I dont' read and dont' have a
      dictionary... I have no idea what it says tho it doesn't seem to be
      asking for money so I'm taking that as not a good sign. I had
      specified research up to $300 US as ok. Can anyone help translate?

      Also, what's the deal now with Archivex no longer involved? What's
      the current Czech Republic research situation?

      Thanks in advance,

      Maura
