My friend's mom passed away when my friend was 6 months old. All her life, she wanted to contact her mother's family. Her dad had lost contact with them (he was in the Army). Later, as a married Navy wife assigned to Japan, she went to the "Town Hall" located in her mother's hometown. They had provided her with all residents of her mom's maiden name! She was finally able to meet the family who knew of her but had never met her. I'm sure that you can somehow find someone who can "bridge" this gap for you. Keep checking all kinds of sites and please do not be discouraged! Good luck to you!
