    I appreciate and thank you for the fine work, energy and thoughtfulness you displayed in this project. I have discovered references to other names mentioned among families you show here, that link back to our family lines on both sides. So happy to research further, not only on Karl Bunge and Herman Kruger but also on the Schmidt family line, and on other German names in Samoa. Alas…. If only I had a quarter of your talent and skills!! Finding names is one thing….writing a journal is another!!
