I'm very new to the process of researching my family tree, and am currently trying to find specific information about my father's side of the family.
James Anthony Laurie was born in 1939 (Chicago, IL) and passed away in 2002 (Marin County, CA); he was the youngest brother of six children, one of which I've never met. I've heard so many different accounts of our lineage, from how many times our last name has been changed to where my grandfather, Carl Laurie, was born.
For some reason I am most interested in finding the uncle I've never met, William Laurie, and learning about his son, Michael. Any help or advice would be appreciated. Thank you!
