  1. Mark,

    I have sent out inquiries to people I know in Los Angles who had relatives living in Shanghai. If they recognize your great grandmother or provide me any details, I will forward the information to you.

    Hope you enjoy the book,

    Mr. Sergoyan,
    I just stumbled upon your blog and was amazed to find my great grandmother Marguerite Sarkissian, in the center of the photo of the two per-centers you displayed. I intend to get your book and use it as a source to understand my ancestor’s life in Shanghai. I am especially interested in learning more about my great grandfather Leon Sarkissian, who died in Shanghai in 1946. Do you know of any sources I might access?
    thanks so much!
