I'll never forget the day that I got a call from a nephew I never knew I had. He had been on a hunt for his grandfather, my dad, and found me on the web.
He was looking for information about the rest of his family. His mother was my sister, actually half sister, and somebody I never met.
I want my grandchildren to know their grandfather and what made him tick. There are plenty of stories that might shine a light on questions they could ask eventually. Maybe, I can help with that.
It's not a story where I'm expecting readers to get out their little finger violins and play them. No, not at all. But, can my grandson and granddaughter learn more about themselves by knowing their background, at least part of it?
There's plenty for them to be proud of. That includes both my side and my wife's sides of the family. I've been amassing information for awhile.
What do you know about your grandparents? Would you like to know more? Would it have made a difference?
