My name is Nathaniel August Butler, but I was born Nathaniel August Lamkin on August 18, 1965, in Sacramento, California. My father was Nikki Lamkin, but I haven't known much of him or his family since my birth. (My mother remarried while I was still an infant, and we did not maintain contact with my birth father.)
I am now trying to research my father's side of the family tree, but details are sketchy. I do know that my father Nikki grew up in Fresno, California, which is where I live now.
