Successful Trace of a Family Seperated for 50 Years!
Successful Trace of a Family Separated for 50 Years!
Today culminated in a successful conclusion to a Trace enquiry that I had received last week. A woman, we'll call her Susan, was taken to the US as a child and family secrets kept the truth of her father's family from her. However, since the recent passing of her mother she reached out and asked if there was any way to trace her father and any other members on his side of the family. I was provided with names of two family members but both names were spelled incorrectly (names provided by her mother) and the dates of birth were only approximate +/- 2 years. Following some research I figured the names must be wrong so took several punts at variations of names/years of birth and eventually struck lucky. From there, the floodgates opened and I was able to make numerous connections. I contacted the family members I'd found and they were happy for their details to be passed on to Susan. I was able to go back to her with names, addresses, phone numbers and photographs and I also put together a family tree going back 8 generations. Needless to say she was very happy. Susan's coming over in a few months for a visit and she insisted that I be invited to the reunion.
Of all the various types of work we do as Private Investigators, I find the tracing and re-connection of people very satisfying.
Let me know if I can do the same for you or someone you know
