I saw your message to Peter Kasischke posted on the Internet. Like you, I have traced my ancestry to Martin and Carolyn, nee Gersonde, Kasischke. This leads me to believe that you are an offspring of my cousin Bob and his wife Ruth Ann.
I wanted to express my condolences to Ruth Ann when I learned of Bob's death, but did not have an address or phone number. I lost track of Bob & Ruth Ann after they moved to Arizona and I departed to Texas, Hawaii & now Mercer Island, Washington.
If I made the correct assumption regarding your ancestry, I would appreciate an update on your mother's (grandmother's?) whereabouts, phone number or e-mail.
