Thank you for your advice. I'm unable to get to our local FHC (which is a great one, by the way) because I am a 24/7 caregiver now. So my best guess is to write to Chur Stadtsarchiv, tell them what little I know, and mention the four villages suggested as possible starting places. Thank goodness, I have a German granddaughter-in-law and she can write the letter of inquiry as well as translate any response we get. What is the current best way to send money????
