To all,

We still have an interest in creating a synopsis for each of the 
parishes in the Kneifel book (we do not want a direct word for word 
translation because of copyright laws, but do want complete lists of 
names, dates and places).

If any of you who can read and translate German into English are 
interested, I can scan and send pages from the book for translation.   
What we are looking for are similar to to the already completed Piotrkow 
diocese, and partially completed Warsaw diocese already completed by 
volunteers and posted at
