Without an approximate birth year, it would be almost impossible to determine any info about your Robert Balis Edens. If you could get his Social Security Number (if he has one), for about $30 you can contact your local Social Security Office and get a copy of his original Social Security Application, which generally lists his parents, mother's maiden name, etc. Incidently, Art probably knows more about this Edens branch than anyone in a America. Good Luck. Bob Eddings.
