It has been quite a while since we last corresponded! I will be glad to help, if I can. I too would like any info on what was cut from the old books.
For starters, my great great grandmother Catherine Diehl Smith (1820-1910) married second Philip Martin Wolf (1807-1882). My great grandfather was Jacob Smith (1842-1927). I have more information on Catherine and her Diehl family than when we last corresponded and would be glad to share it with you.
Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
and we will go from there.
Best regards, John
