    please respond to this mail:

    I am looking for a HARALDUR KARLSSON, born about 1947,
    who was a student at INTERNATSGYMNASIUM Schloss Ploen,
    in the years 1965 etc. Our classmates all lost contact with H.K.
    I personally will stop-over (from NYC to CPH) in KEL on 2015-Dec 09
    and thought to inquire with the Iceland people registrators to re-locate him.
    Harald’s father lived “in the north” of Iceland and he himself
    wanted to study at Hannover veterinarian university. That was about 1967.

    could you kindly be of some assistance to my inquiries.
    Thank you, Carsten Pieper carpieper@aol.com
    living in Japan but writing from New York (on visit).
