Nice to meet you. Unfortunately, I'm not the missing link to your genealogy puzzle. I too am searching for information on my mothers family. Her father's name was Clarence Sconiers. Which is how I was led to you. I also found it interesting that you mentioned an Aunt Dorothy. My grandmother's name is Dorothy and she lives in St. Petersburg, Florida. She and Clarence had my mother Sylvia Gilliam (maiden name) now Brown (my father's name). So I was hoping to one day surprise my mom, with a genealogy report to answer some of the questions she's always had.
Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org anytime.
Best wishes in your search and school. Hang in there at all cost!
