Members and friends of SGGEE,
SGGEE received the news that Jerry Frank, one of our founding members,
passed away peacefully yesterday after a long struggle with cancer. We
will miss him as a friend and colleague who shared a wealth of
information with us about Volhynia and Russian Poland, developing a
special expertise on locating small villages whose names were creatively
spelled in several languages. Many of you may want to read the brief
obituary published this morning by the Calgary Herald through
The Legacy.com site also has a link for leaving condolence messages for
the family in an online guestbook.
SGGEE will arrange for a memorial tribute to honor Jerry at his funeral
service on October 9.
Our sympathies and prayers are with his family.
Sigrid Pohl Perry, President
SGGEE Board of Directors
