I marvel at your patience and persistence and the gift you have given us. You are so dedicated and thorough in all you do. I know that your work transcribing and translating other families' material has made an unbelievable impact on so very many families. K. H.

Dear Elke, thanks so much for your translations! Although I can pick out names, the details that you can provide give me new information and tell me more about their professions, homes, illnesses - their lives! Much appreciated! Kathy

Dear Dr. Hedstrom, I just wanted you to know how helpful your assistance has been in helping me search for my family. I thank you for your guidance and interpretations; without them I would still be looking in a haystack for that needle! S. B.
