        Hello Frank,
        I am happy to hear of your offering to look up info. My grandparents
        were from two different villages, having met after immigrating to the US,
        so this is actually a double request. Further complicating things,
        (Sorry!) my grandfather's village, Vulsinki, or Vul'shynky, Ung/Uzh
        county, became annexed to the Soviet Union after 1945, and now is called
        Vilsinki, Ukraine. I don't know if it would be in your book or not. I
        certainly hope it is.
        My grandmother's village is still in Slovakia. It is Hanigovce, Saris,
        in the Presov region. I hope these complications don't dampen your
        enthusiasm! You are providing all of us a service we couldn't get any
        other way. Let me know whatever it costs for reimbursing your wonderful
        Many thanks,

        --David Hanich
