The skeletons are still falling out of my closet, and I opened it last
When I found out runaway g/grandfather had another family, I was going
to leave it - truly!
It was burning my mother up - to think that she had 2 uncles and 3 aunts
that she had never known, and that three of them were still alive.
What she did, was to contact one of the children of the remaining
uncle,and let them decide.
Fortunatly for us they are all very comfortable with the situation, and
strangly we alway's thought it was our family that was from the illigit
side - but it was them!
My mother alway's wanted a picture of her grandfather - she now has 20
My son gets married next year - and we have had to add many new names to
the wedding list - should be quite a reunion.
Hope this helps - good luck, Jan Oliff.
