Dear Aaron,

I am afraid that I cannot help you with any of the questions that you ask.

But I am wondering if you might be related to Eric Roll, who lived as a
child in Czernowitz, and came to England in 1925. He became an eminent
civil servant, and was awared a peerage, becoming Lord Roll. He was born in
1907 in Nowosielitza. His parents were Mathias and Fany, his father being
one of seven children. I got these details from his autobiography "Crowded
Hours", most of which is concerned with his time in Government service.

This may or may not be of any relevance to you! I am copying this to the
List in case anyone else has any thoughts.

Best regards,

David Glynn
