Sure Duane. No problem. I can mail it out on Monday. The book is at my father's and I'll need time to copy it since it is quite expansive. Cost is minimal so no need for reinbursement. All research was completed by a German cousin named Ralf and an American cousin who found each other and compared notes. Ralf still being in Germany had some good stuff. He flew to Oregon for a reunion several years ago and that is when the book was comprised. His visit was the first time since the 1920s that the two sides of this Gilles family met. My g-grandfather went back to Mertloch with his brother in I think 1927 and that was the last contact. You can send your address to: or
