Help finding LIVE people???
Ok I need some direction. While I'm great at finding dead folks, I'm currently challenged with finding people that just may still be living and I have no clue where to start.
Somewhere in my childhood memories I seem to remember hearing stories of my father having to leave the love of his life behind in Germany when shipped back to the states during WWII in the late 40's. Apparently when the young black soldiers fell in love with the German girls and aplied for mairriage licences, Uncle Sam would make a point to have orders changed and send the boys back home to avoid the mixed marriages.
My Dad recently passed away and in going through his things I'm finding all sorts of pictures and letters from this young German girl AND their SON!!!!
The child would have been considered a 'brown' baby however, my dad was biracial and the girl, of course was German, so the the photos of the youngster look white, although he is technically mixed. The woman should be somewhere in her 70's and the child somewhere in his 50's. I have names of both and dates but have no clue where to start.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
