Jessica Loepp Are You There? West, East Prussia, Germany

David and Minna Loepp Green Book, Germany. Poland

I know this is a random post, but feel it's very important to get back to dear relative that left me a message months ago.

Jessica, I couldn't find your comment--I thought I was allowing anyone to leave a comment and because you messaged me after 14 days. I suppose that comment was on hold. I'm so sorry I'm getting back to you so late. Jessica, your blog is closed and I don't know how to contact you.

David Loepp's Green Book. I don't have any extra copies and as a matter-of-fact, my mother didn't even buy one, but all her siblings did. I was sorry she didn't because my name is even in it. She regrets it now, but did inherit her father's copy. He was no relation to David Leopp except that was my Grandmother O'Connor's, (his wife) grandparents, so he kept it. David and Minna were my mother's great grandparents and she did meet her grandmother, Minna.

My grandfather passed away and my mother went up to help my step-grandmother. She had already thrown the book away and my mom took it out of the trash and gave it to me when she returned home. I was thrilled, because the only copy I had at that point was one that I had copied on an old copy machine ages ago. I have the book in my hand and it's more precious than any inheritance of money that I could ever think of receiving.

Now, to get a book to you. I'm going to figure this out, I promise. I know how I feel about having it and it should be copied. There are soooo many of us--so many that don't have our family history and this branch is amazing. They were so brave, and lived though percecution that we can't even fathom. Please know that I'm going to get help with this and see if I can't get permission from the Englehorns to re-publish it. I may even--- word for word, have to write the whole thing out on web pages if I have to. By the way...I'm a terrible speller. Just fix the mistakes and let me know, if I decide to do that. Please write me back asap at:
