Re: When a relative is not a relative...

For me, this is a hard one. Lisa, I understand your professional concerns, but there is no way anyone can take the man I called Grandpa out of my family tree. I will document and note all anybody wants, but I have two maternal grandfathers--the one who died when my mom was little more than a toddler and the one who married my grandmother when my mom was a child. I am as interested in knowing the ancestry of the latter grandfather as in the former's. Blood alone does not make family, at least not for me. My aunt is not a step-aunt and her daughters are not step-cousins.

Respectfully,
Sandra
