Ok guys thanks for the replys in the previous post.... to explain more my grand fathers name was Charles George Umlah, when he went to get his old age pension they told him his real last name was Charles George Shippien. In further research I found out that his mother married a George Umlah and this is why he had the umlah name. Also his name Shippien is from his mother it was her maiden name. On his birth certificate I found his real father is shown as un known... is there anyway possible I could find more details about his father... Im not sure if George Umlah adopted my grand father or anything. Thanks in advance!
