Hi there, I am searching for Elvin Geurra or I may have the wrong name. The name is very similar to that. I have very little information other than a name and I am lead to belive he served as a Peace corp to samoa from between the years 1973-1976? Also I am lead to believe he may have been half american indian? Again I am unsure if I have the correct dates. If anyone can remember this man or knows someone who knew him can you please point me in the right direction. I live in australia and until recently I am lead to belive he may be the link to finding my biological father.

I believe that you are searching for Alvin Gurule, group 15, who was in Western Samoa starting in 1974, stationed in Savai'i after training, and extended beyond 1976 (but I don't know how late he stayed). Try this address: PO Box 1621, Idaho Springs, Colorado 80452, and see if he responds.
Since I am working on organizing a reunion of Group 15, I have access to a few listings of RPCVs. However, a letter I sent to Al has not yielded a response from him, so I don't know if it is still current.
Yes, he is half American Indian, Blackfoot, if I remember correctly!
