Dear Joe,
I am trying to locate my college roommate who joined the Peace Corps in 1962 and went to Venezuela to teach English at the Univeristy de Oriente. She married another Venezuela bound Peace Corps Volunteer who taught Agriculture there. Her maiden name was Mary Ramsey.

I think her husbands name was Scott. They separated some time after returning to the US, and Mary returned to Venezuela with her children to teach at the University again.

I hope you can help me.

I'm trying to find a man whose name is Don or Dan Peppo, who served in Venezuela, Guanare, during 1962-1964.

He was the friend of my father, Giuseppe Bernardini, who is Italian and was living in Venezuela when they met.

Please let me know if you can help me to get in touch with him.
