message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.

About Our Family Research
I'M JUST STARTING THIS PAGE, AND HOPEFULLY I'LL FIND MY GRANDFATHER'S REAL FATHER. HIS NAME WAS RICHARD WILFRED RATHMANN. HIS MOTHER DIED SHORTLY AFTER GIVING BIRTH TO HIM, AND UNFORTUNATELY SHE PASSED ON KEEPING THE SECRET OF HER LOVER. HE WAS RAISED BY HER SISTER, HIS AUNT AND HER HUSBAND. THEY RESIDED IN BUFFALO, NY AND HIS AUNT, WHICH HE CALLED MOM, WAS BLIND.
