I finally found a home for the Kurdish Bibles that I posted about back in 2010! I usually wait for some family member to find my post to claim their lost family treasures. I just don't have the time to hunt everybody down. But for this one I actively searched for a willing recipient.
Actually, I was spurred on to do so by someone else who wanted the bibles just because they were Kurdish bibles. I had to say "no" because the whole point of this blog is to get these lost family heirlooms into the hands of one branch of the family or another.
In the original post, if you recall, I mentioned not being able to find an obituary. Well I finally found it which made it so much easier to locate family members.

I was able to find a memorial for Charles' mother, Mary Sophia Voigt Perrill, at Find A Grave, and from there make contact with someone who I feel will cherish them as a family treasure.
