Thank you very much for advising me of this point which I sadly had already surmised was true. While it is very hard to receive the information, at least it is a form of closure. I've already accepted the fact that I will not be able to trace that part of my family with records from that location and I simply work on those lines which will yield results. May I ask where you got your information from? I would like to make a note of it for my files.
