"Rumour of a Half-Sibling" #general

Steve Orlen


In my family, the rumor was pretty strong, but the man who abandoned
his first wife and daughter never spoke of them, nor did he tell
anyone their names. After years of not being able to figure out how
to proceed, I finally put my mind to it, and after two weeks of
searching, and much help >from genners, I spoke to the grand-daughter
of this scamp, a 78 year old woman living in Oakland, California. It
wasn't a cold call - some researchers on another side of her family,
whom I found on-line, prepared her. We spoke for an hour, we both
learned a great deal, she ended up crying with happiness.
