| How much updated is that databank? || Nov 4, 2005 |
Thanks Russell, however from my last discussion with Donna (as I said 7 or even 8 years ago) I understood they were in the process of moving somewhere else. How do I find out that this info from the web page you've given is still valid?
Nevertheless the age would fit...
| How to find old friends? || Nov 4, 2005 |
Hi Veronika, I hope you will find your old friends.
Maybe someone has some general tips in finding people in the US with rather common names. There must be a lot of people searching for old friends, as US-citizens are moving rather often.
I have the same problem even in Germany, when I want to find my dear old friend Peter Müller.:sad:
I have only heard that there are people in the US helping with finding old relatives or adopted children finding their biological mother/father. They only need the name and one place where the missing person used to live.
Otherwise, Veronika, did they go to a special church or were active in some organization?
Kind regards STeffi
| No organized hunt, please :-))) || Nov 4, 2005 |
Dear Steffi and all,
the purpose of my search is purely personal and I do nto want to disturb anybody's privacy. That's why I do not want to get involved in any organized hunt by any detective agency or whatsoever.
I am perhaps hoping for finding someone who knows/knew them, met them etc.
They were not much in any church stuff. John used work in some big grocery-delivering company as a superviser and Donna in an elevator company. They have a daughter - Candace (no mistyping here - really Candace) who was 9 at that time. Well anyway if that sounds familiar to anybody, let them know about me and me about them.
Concerning your friend Peter Müller, well, that's bad, too typical, too common... Any luck with your search?

I have sent you a private email with some addresses I have found surfing the internet.
Perhaps it helps!
| No hunting of course || Nov 4, 2005 |
sorry: Peter Müller was just an example for a common name in Germany.
No hunting of course, I just thought, that there are maybe some kind of volunteers who are interested in finding persons.
But I see that some colleagues are willing to help you.:-)

The "New York Times" published an article on 16th September 2001, which can be found at
describing the experiences of John Connelly in the Twin Towers attack. It includes a photo of the Connellys with the caption:
"John and Donna Connelly at home with their dog Luke..."
No idea if these are the right people, but the photo should enable you to tell if they are or not.

Jack, thanks a lot, but that's not them. Though the age of Mr Connelly would correspond. Anyway, thanks for you help, I appreciate it very much!
