My parents divorced when I was quite young, and all contact with my large extended father's family ceased at that time.My father was Patrick Joseph Gartland. He was born in SF in 1923.Both his parents, according his birth certificate were also born in SF.His parents were Eugene Patrick Gartland and Alice O"Connor.I remember that my father had a brother, Eugene,and a sister, Maureen.My grandparents and aunt are deceased.My uncle will not respond to any letters.I remember that he had two daughters about my age. One was named Belinda or Melinda.I have two sisters, Susan and Colleen.I was born in SF in 1953.My parents divorced in 1958.Gartland is not a common name in this area.I have written some Gartlands but they find no relation to SF Gartlands. My uncle was an attorney in SF until retirement. Other relations had the last name Mooney, I remember. If anyone knows of any connection, it would mean a great deal to me to hear from you.Thank you so much.
