Thanks for the info, now I know why my grand father was not mentioned in my childhood. Also it seems that my father must have had little recollection of him because of his age when his/your father emigrated. In retrospect that means you and my father (deceased) were step brothers! Can you please forward me your fathers date of birth and death so that I can continue my researches into my family backgroud etc. And authenticate the info you have forwarded to me.
