Looking for My Great-Uncle Leopold Müller

Off and on over the past ten years I have searched for information about my great-uncle Leopold Müller, who was deported from his home in Bad Kissingen, Germany and murdered in Poland in 1942.  I chronicled some of this quest at my old solo blog, Is That Legal?

That blog is now defunct, but some of the relevant posts are archived here:

    Good luck, Eric!

    It really sounds like a mission impossible, but then and again long forgotten film-copies do pop up….

    I salute you for trying to come up with information on Leopold Müller.

    Dear Eric,
    I read your article and I can totally understand all the emotions you experienced through your story. Thanks for sharing it. I do however want to point out that this is a rare situation as I have never heard of this happening in my 25 years of family research in Germany. Sorry it happened to you.
    I was particulary surprised to see that you are researching family in Bad Kissingen and that you are in CH, NC. My family is also from Bad Kissingen and I grew up in Chapel Hill. (Today I live in Israel.) Small world.
    Anyway, I have wonderful contacts in Bad Kissingen with dedicated, honest people who would surely be happy to help in any way they can. Please contact me directly by email and I will help put you in touch.
