In Response To: Re: Will Pay Your Expenses ()
New York doesn't issue copies of original birth certificates only certified copies which have no information amount ones parents. The informant was my oldest sister who was 21 at the time and was in the dark about my mother just about as much as I was. She didn't like my mother's husband so she told them my mother was widowed.
I still believe that the Thomas family from Harlem was my grandparents despite the fact that rumors circulated throughout my childhood that my mother was in a Foster Home as a child. I think this could have been possible if her parents suddenly died and no one took her in. The Foster home could have been that of Beatrice Smith and George Jones (?).
Thank you for showing interest in my situation.
