Hey...let's not be quitting here.I'm certainly not ready to. But let's do this by e-mail.
Tell me your full name with date and place of birth. What CAN you tell me about your mother?Do you know when she was born? Even approximately, will help. I'm assuming it was HER mother who was married so many times.Does she know anything at all about her father, other than he was called, "Frenchy?"
I have more questions but will wait until you e-mail me. The more I can find out, the better the chance I may be able to help you find some answers.
