Indeed I am in luck that you went to such trouble in answer to my posting; I am lucky to have a relative (however distant) like you. I have asked another cousin that I found over the internet who lives in SC if she can find the books in her local library. Thank you so very much. She calls me "kin-kin" which I think is a really unique nick-name... perhaps something she inherited from our mutual ancestors. I'm afraid I don't know much about German.
