Sir or Madame;
On 22 Oct 2000, a message sent >from Robyn Perlin to your Group stating
that the Trakai District Research Group had made a contribution of 544 newly
acquired records.
This list includes the Town of Punia. Can I obtain either the entire
list or just that for Punia.
Is this clear enough?

He was also the founder of a German Language Newspaper, "Freie Press" and

163 St & Fort Washington Ave is a residential area and has been for at
least 40 years (since I lived there as a child). I don't know of any place
that could match what you are looking for, *but* there is the
Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center located right nearby (165 - 168 St.).
Also - at 99 Fort Wachington Ave, (which might be 163 St.) there used to be
a hospital which I think was not affiliated then with Col-Pres, known as
the Francis Delafield Hospital. This may have some connection with what you
are looking for.
Good luck.

Try the local Jewish genealogical or historical society of whatever city
your friend grew up in. Or, try an existing synagogue in that city. . . .
Or, try the local Bureau of Jewish Studies or the Jewish Studies
Department of a local university.

Or, ask the people who currently occupy this building that you say is
now a church. They might know.
