On that second part I'm not exactly sure how you'd be certain they wouldn't sell it to a private collector. I suppose you could have the letter appraised and then donate it to a historical museum (maybe a local one or try for one near where your great-great grandmother was living during the war) on the condition they don't sell it or they will owe you the sum of the appraisal. Though I would probably just leave it at the condition they don't sell it as it probably won't be appraised for very much.

On the first part you'd probably have to go through some genealogy sites to find Mr. Thomas's family
