This is slightly off the topic but since I see you read Deutsch sites, I
will ask. I don't know where you are posting from. I believe I have
found my grandfather's family in Gruenberg, Deutschland (No Uemlauts on
my computer). I spoke with them briefly by phone and exchanged e-mail.
Later in the day, my daughter handed me the phone and said it was
Germany. I answered and heard nothing. I hung up thinking she was
kidding with me. She was not. I have sent several e-mail and have heard
nothing. It is the daughter's e-mail. Is it possible that it is her
e-mail from school? The e-mail server is Thanks.
