Jeff - I suggest you post another message as a follow-up message to this first one, listing any known names of relatives, beginning with yourself, then your father, etc. Add any dates available, birth, death, etc., also places of residence. If you even think you may know a name or other bit of information, add that also.This is like detective work, so any clue may be the lead someone may need to help you. By posting on the board, you stand the best chance of making progress, as so many of us read the messages everyday. I wish you great success in your quest for your family history.
