August 2021, communication from the town of Kirrweiler outreach office: "Last year, Günter Schäfer and Martina Stöckl published a local family book. They captured all the inhabitants of Kirrweiler between 1618 - 1925/1945. I're been wondering if I'm finding your ancestors there. In fact, Moritz (born Moses) and Rosa Süß lived in Schlosstraße 4. I scanned the excerpt from the family book for you and attached it to this mail. I'll also send you a local plan. The Schloßstraße still exists today. The local family book also contains pictures of the houses in Schloßstraße. I also scanned these for you and hung them in this mail.

I hope I was able to help you further.

Beautiful greetings from Kirrweiler Christine Dawson-Erasmy"
