Hi Mark,

I expect that others on this list will be able to provide you detailed
guidance as to what the data you have provided, as well as any other
detailed information that you may have, with appropriate recommendations,
more likely in off-line communication. It appears from your comments that
your father was not provided any real information as to what occurred or
what the tracking information meant until significant time had passed.
This is not unlike other instances well documented over the past 50 years
or so. It is unfortunate but apparently very common.

I hope that others can provide you with the support and information that
you are seeking.
