    • Send photographs that will be scanned and returned to you to: Marian Beil, 4 Lodge Pole Road, Pittsford NY 14534
    • Send slides that will be scanned and returned to you to: Michael Santarelli, PO Box 988 Lakeport CA 95453.

Some communities have several names, and variations on the spellings. The one most frequently used by the Volunteers was chosen, but the variations are listed on the individual pages.

If you served in a community not shown below, write to the webmaster.
