      Leonard I found your message on Audrey’s website. I am the creator of Audrey’s websites and the Murder In The Moonlight website. I still have two more LaSAlle Tower related murders yet to tell plus updates on the others. I hope to catch up in a couple months.
      Your websites are awesome. Your mother’s story is great. I’ve been doing the family history for 40 years and am always looking for stories to add and pass down.

      Dear Mr. Grossman, it`s a great work You`ve done. I am working for the GEDOK FrankfurtRheinMain on a historical research project. That’s how I became aware of your blog.I’m looking for a woman named Erna Adler, who lived in Frankfurt in 1932/33 at the address Eppsteiner Straße 43. Her name is listed in the member directory of the GEDOK and she was an art sponsor. Can this be your aunt?
      Best regards, Sonja Sandvoß
