I finally get on Ancestry, a few months after my mom passed and found that one of my cousins, on my mom's side was trying to locate us. She posted the following in the year 2000. I finally found this in June 2008. At least I had my cousin's last name.
I felt bad - I don't know why. I guess that mom never knew her niece was looking for her. Mom always had self-esteem issues. Always felt, no one loved her. Would these "issues" she always had, be rooted with her father?
So I immediately posted to the message board
The next day after I posted, someone got back to me. Things, were starting to happen...
Stay at home Mom to 1 dog and 2 cats. I am the "big sister" in the photo. My baby sister, passed away unexpectedly, Sept. 2015 at the young age of 56. I miss her terribly. Everyone in my childhood family has now passed. I have 3 sons. My oldest son died in 2003 at the age of 25. GENEALOGY is a growing passion of mine as well as History.
