I have been searching for my husband's grandfather on the EIDB since it was
put on the web and had been unsuccessful. I recently used Stephen Morse's
site using the Jewish search. I put in only first letter of first name and
first letter of last name along with ethic origin. I also knew his
residence and input it. I found several names to try, but none worked.
Finally found a Mase Kranz. I wanted Morris Kern. I pictured how he, being
Austria, might have pronounced his name and lo and behold it was him. Keep
trying. I am thrilled.
