Great local interest story, Glenn.  That certainly has to be one of 
the best EBay finds that one could come across.  I will include a 
link to your site from ours the next time I do an update.

Would Andrew's parents have been Gottlieb and Julianna nee 
Friedenberg?  This family lived at Matschulki.
