      Hello Bill,

      Thank you. This is just what we needed to know. It is so easy to muddy the waters if you don't know what you are doing. We don't want to appear rude or demanding.

      By modest donation do you mean $25 or more?

      We will try the Carpatho Rusyn New Jersey chapter. We found their webpage.

      Thanks again. We are indebted to your kindness, understanding, and helpful guidance. This is a great group. They make both of us proud of our Rusyn heritage on our fathers side.

      Gwen and Joe
