    Hi Kathy
    Sorry to hear about your uncle recently passing away. My new email address is demm5555@yahoo.com. I last wrote to you on kthompson@wsalem.k12.wi.us but it is no longer active. I am interested in sending you a copy of the passenger list of the Atalanta on which your great-great grandpa Fritz and traveled to America from Germany. The Miller reunion of the Conrad Muller strain or Millers is coming up in July and we had once thought to meet there. Hope to hear from you.
    Best Regards
    David Miller
