    12/9/04 Dear Olga,

    Can you advice me where to find records about my parents? They stayed in American Army refugee camps after sec. world war. I know for sure they were in Wetzlar (near Frankfurt am Main) on Sept / Oct 1948. I'm looking for their marriage certificate or any other document about them like a copy of their passports or their identity cards. They came after the Holocaust to Germany from Poland and Russia. Their names are: Avram Ledershtein & Mania Ledershtein (Finkelshtein). Anaish
