My grandfather’s obituary. Sadly, we lost communication after my mother’s death in 1990. I found his obituary on Ancestry and I am trying to contact any of his surviving children.

  1. Seems there are quite a number of children surviving. Surely at least one will contact you.

    Keeping my fingers crossed that someone picks up the ball and runs with it.
