  Hello Evert,

        My eye was caught by your own surname, Moes.  Are you related
  to the big factory-owning Moes family from the Lodz and Bialystok
  areas? I had by chance just been reading about the Moes cloth factory
  in Choroszcz near Bialystok, and I've also seen a lot of mentions of
  the Moes family in Otto Heike's industrial history of the Lodz area,
  as well as in some Polish books on the history of the cloth boom.
