Hello Kathleen, I have the same problem with my grandmother's mother. Her familylast name is Aubin . I try to find papers about her, and I just could not find anything. I was not even sure about where she was from, alot of my family told me she was from Cuba, but I just found out, she is Lebanese. The best thing to do , is to ask family members, who are still alive, maybe your grandfather's sisters or brothers for starters. But, yes, I understand how you feel, sometime I wish I can find papers about my great-grandmother. Well, if you need help, finding things online. I can do that for you.
