I came across a photo of a boy that I did not recognize and was interested to find out who he was. In my quest to do so I discovered two separate families that were my father's children, nine children. In five years I have written two books in which this saga unravels, the third is nearly finished and I still have not found out who the boy is. I do not have a name for him and it is proving difficult. Without GR the reunion would not have been possible. Thank you and any suggestions for finding someone without a name would be useful. Jane
