Thank god I've stumbled onto this forum!! I need help, and was giving up hope of finding it.
My mother, who's maiden name was Moniz, recently passed away from Alzheimers at the age of 53. She had been sick for several years, and when I started to get interested in "Shaking the family tree" she was too ill to be of use.
I am trying to track down her grandfather - my great grandfather. I have the name of my grandmother, but "Mary Moniz" is an incredibly common name for New Bedford.
if someone could help me narrow down my needle in a haystack, point me in a direction where I could go, etc. I would be most greatfull. The only information I have about Mary Moniz was that she died in 1975 in New Bedford - I'm not sure of the date of her birth. I also think her maiden name was "sylvia", but again I'm not sure.
If anyone can give me help, or advice, please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
