Grandfather: Luis M Vidal Grandmother: Bonnie/Beverly Seals
I am writing to find out answers to my mothers about her father and of her lost family & questions of my own of who my grandfather was. My grandmother told me some things about my grandfather & told my mother many others but all her life she also hid a lot of information from my Mother.
She has now passed away a few years ago and the information we was trying to get for years from her now lays in grave with her.
This is going to be my hardest try to find my mom and my family. I am starting to feel that there is no hope in ever finding the information my mom desires, and basically like all things in life she just happen to get the short end of the stick.
I am going to give a lot of information about my grandfather some could wrong or off a bit, but some only really a family member would know of & some that just general info about my Grandmother & grandfather.
My Grandmother live in New York with my grandmother, we know they lived in Long Island, NY & also lived or visited something called the catsgille or something like that. He he did have a sister that drown in a bathtub that left him as the only child. We know he owned or worked for a company called Paint Company of America from a letter to my grandmother that she found a long time ago. We know he worked for the CIA, we also was told he at times was a nervous man, like he would watch out the windows a lot to make sure no one would be trying to spy on him and such (some thing like that).
We know he was a big eater some times waking my grandmother up to fix him spaghetti & he also had a liking for Cream cheese and jelly. As he was aging his weight increased to the point that his doctor told him if he did not stop he would die of a heart attack & he was also starting to bald a bit. He and my grandmother had 2 Kids one being my mother Beverly Rose Vidal & my mom's lost sister was named I belive Laura Vidal after my great grandmother.
Soon after the birth of my mother and her sister they split up from pressure of some sort, and my moms sister stayed with my grandfather and my mom went with my grandmother. They Separated some where around 1957(?) Part of the reason I heard was because my grandmother was not full Spanish and other reasons.
My Great grandfather was also said to have photo's with presidents on his walls and also was in the import/export business and also in sugar + Molasses.
A possible aunt to my mother was named Wanita because there was something about my grandmother naming my mother after her or naming her bonita wanita or something like that.
After the separation my grandmother moved back to Baltimore, where we also live still to this day, my mothers and her sisters birth dates was like this. Laura Vidal Born 12-24-55 Beverly Vidal 7-20-57
This is the info on my Grandparents parents.
(Helen T Seals)(Victor/Louis Vidal)(Laura vidal) Beverly R SealsLouis M Vidal
They was Both the same age so they was both born in 1926.
We used to have a picture of my mothers father but it has been misplaced for some time but mygrandmother used to say my brother Steven looks a bit like him.
My grandfather had a lot of private dealing and a lot was hidden about him, We would really like to know more about him and maybe one even meet our lost family. also hopefully my mom can finnaly meet her sister.
I hope I do not search in vain.. My email is Mordhom@gmail.com ask me anything and we will try to answer you the best we can. Thank you for taking time to read this and sorry for it being so spurty on information but we don't got much to go off of. As said we would be willing to do a blood test or any other means of finding our family.
