i will definetly look for that book to see if it has the info i need. he passed away before i was born, (i was born in 1975), so i dont think my mom had ever met him when she was involved with my dad. i dont know his first name unfortunately...either john or james (of what my mom thinks anyway).i tried looking up info on my grandmother as well but all i can find is her obit. it lists only 1 son and 2 grandkids. she was born in 1916 and i cant find her on ANY census. i thought if i found her on a census that maybe i would find him after they were married. my dad was born in 1947 so there is no census yet to try to find the info that way. i will see if i can maybe get a copy of my dad's birth certificate and find the info that way. my dad hasn't been around since i was 2 yrs so there is no way to get any info from him unfortunately.
