My husbands trip went absolutely wonderful! Not sure you are aware, but there is a family reunion of the Tolmich/Talmadge/Tolmiche family planned in Norman Okalahoma the end of May 2012. If you are interested, I can put in touch with the organizers.
I also have pictures I can e-mail you. My husband and our 3rd son made the journey and they were amazed at family resemblences and these two men are SECOND cousins!
