Notes for Doris Jean (Child 3)
Source. When I found out that Anni Edith Federley had a passport for Us I found her in the US Social Security Death Index as dead in santa Barbara. The death index showed the syrname Slosted. I trhe found a D.j. Slosted in the phone book of Santa Barbara. I wrote a letter to her and it turned out to be the right person. Doris has helped me by given all the information about Anni Ediths decendants.
