I have read the entire message board on Ishmael..and I didn't find what I was looking for...maybe you all could help. My father left my sister and I after my mother passed away in 1980, and I even after finding him when I was 18...I still know NOTHING about my heritage. These are the things I do know... My father is Charles Ishmael, son of Grace and 'Skeeter' Ishmael all from AZ. I was told that my father has 2 brothers...Larry and Michael. I have not seen or spoken with my father since about 2000..I live in MA. I would love ANY information anyone has...Thank you all! Oh, my name is Heidi and my sister is Holly. Our mother's name was Joanne Ishmael...if that helps.
