Dear Mr.Moore,

I wanted to thank you for sharing these pictures...when my grandfather William J Hoffmann died, a friend of my grandmothers got her (Ann Hoffmann) to BURN most of her past so she wouldn't be reminded of all we have left is a small box of my mother's photos. This site is greatly appreciated.


Carol Tileston -- daughter of Margaret Hoffmann

If you would like to share any information about the Hoffmann family
or if you would like to be added to my POW/Internee e-mail distribution list,
please let me, Tom Moore, know.
