Hello. I am wondering if you have discovered any information about your wife's mother's father. My grandmother (b.1919) was said to be the illigitimate child of Fred Waring himself. She was found by my great grandfather with a note saying she came from a musical backround. A Jewish star was also with her, although I am not sure in what form. A private eye hired when my grandmother was a younger woman, came to the conclusion that Fred Waring was her father. The investigator approached Fred's family, but had the door shut in his face. He had said that Fred's daughter, who had answered the door, was the spitting image of my grandmother. Anyway, I thought that if perhaps you had found any contacts from/related to the orchestra members, you might be able to help me. Thanks for your time, and good luck in your search.
