Was your father also the father of the boys?

If not........they are your half-brothers

Were they adopted?

Did your father marry your mother?

Sorry to fire off so many questions, but there is a point to them...............

Welcome to the boards, Jennifer.

Have you got the marriage certificate of your parents, to get you started?

Is this your birth?
