      tj - as I recall Keith sent me on a wild goose chase back about 3 years ago.
      He thought he'd discovered that Edith Hope Genee lived not too far from me
      in what is now old North Hollywood and a Mexican slum. I belive the time
      frame was the 1940's. I found the address but don't think it was still the
      same house,etc. It is now two lots combined into one, surrounded by pink
      cinder block 8 feet high with an ornamental iron gate such as they fancy in
      Tijuana and several small, newer (looks like late 1950's) homes scattered on
      the property. No one at home that I could see and the neighborhood was
      scattered with little latin ragamuffins. I'm sure an inquiry about the
      history of that property would have been met with blank stares and "no
      sabe". K
