Surnames:

I am trying to locate a history of St.John's Ukrainian Orthodox Church, Clark Street, Sharon.  The church was founded in 1926 and did publish a history on its 50th anniversary in 1976.  I would like to locate a history of the parish published in the 1940s or 50s, if still available.  I collect the histories of Slav Orthodox and Greek Catholic parishes.  To date, I have acquired some 800 volumes, which, I believe, is the largest collection its kind anywhere.  Many thanks.
