Search - Helen Celmer
My name is Linda McGinn and I was born Gemma Celmer in Pittsburgh, PA in August 1950.My birth mother's name was Helen Celmer (sometimes misspelled Celemer).I have researched and found out a lot of information about my mother and have been in contact with a cousin who was very close to her.Helen passed away some years ago and only has one remaining sister alive, still living in Pittsburgh and I hope to visit her and my cousin soon.
My search though is for my father.He would be 92 or 93 and he and my mother had dated for approximately two years but were not married.My cousin was in her early 20's when my mother passed away and she doesn't recall who my father might be.I know from the adoption records that he was born in Maryland, was of German descent, was 5'7" and had a ruddy complexion.I am currently working with a lawyer to open the adoption records, as it seems silly to withhold this information after all this time.I'm sure my father has passed away, but if anyone knew Helen Celmer maybe they might recall my father.
I'm also interested in researching the family tree and have already found the names of my grandparents (via the Social Security Records and confirmation by my cousin) they were Ignatius Frank Celmer and Mary Ann Kuzniak. (immigrants from Poland)
Any further information anyone can supply would be greatly appreciated!
