Re: Afraid to continue research - need advice
In Response To: Re: Afraid to continue research - need advice ()
Thank you Hollis,
This has been such an emotional issue for me my entire life. Not knowing where I come from has made be feel like a stranger who has never quite fit in. I'm half-white and my mom's family never quite accepted me so I'm not close to them and have never felt like I fit in anywhere. In many ways I feel like an orphan looking for her family. Pathetic eh?
I'd like to search some more but really don't know how to do the research, especially since I live in Canada and I'm trying to find info in the US. Yesterday I learned that there were online resources but I'm so green I don't even know how to use them. As I get older I feel more compelled to find out where I come from. So, I'm going to try to teach myself and do my research a bit at a time.
Thank you again for your words or encouragement.
