Dear Sister Curtis,

   Sister Gerber sent an email requesting interviews for all three of you.  I let her know that the Bishop has 3:00 - 4:30 available for the three of you.  Since then, I have not heard back from her as to who would get which slot.

   Do you have a preference?

Hopefully someone on this list who speaks both German and Polish can 
help further, and even offer solution.   I speak neither language, but I 
am aware that many German names became Polish names that had the same 
meaning, and perhaps that is the case here.   For instance, Schwarz 
became Czarnecki, both meaning black.
