yesterday i said i was looking for moya hansen/bryant who wed douglas chapman,,
in my seach since november i have found their marrage and their births but also 2 marrage papers same man and same woman and same day etc but she used the 2 names ? why i dont know ,
moya was born a hansen i know this as these are my parents and i have found 2 of my brothers after searching 43 years but on our birth records she has used bryant or hansen as maiden name / why dont know this either ,
there is still one brother out there named after father born 1955 and i was born 1957 my other brothers who ive found were born 1958 and 1959 ,
found out father died in 2000 but cant find another marrage or death for mother ,if she can be found i think its time for a very long awaited chat between mother and her daughter ,something i have waited all my life for ,by the way having my 2 little brothers in my life now is such a wounderfull feeling, but i still have this ache inside of me to know a little about mother
