Gretchen A. Warda (nee Wernecke), a DAR sister, Colonial Dame & Wisconsin Society Past President, paid us over $4,000 back in the early 1980s to do field, on-site German Genealogy research in East Germany.  Yes, back when it was NO FUN!  She had read my article in a genealogical publication.  The topic was on-site German Genealogy research IN-country.  She was hooked.  This fellow, Karl-Michael Sala had traveled to numerous tiny little villages all over Germany  & the Czech Republic (Cechy in Czech, historically aka Bohemia or Böhmen, auf deutsch) for himself, the mother of his children, their ancestors & a few clients!  This guy could actually decipher this old German handwriting better than his native German mother, for goodness sake.  Give me a telephone so I can call this guy to ask him if he’d do some research for me.
