Mine is that most of the young men on the one side of the family, Wimer's, died in car accidents. Also on the Moffitt side, my cousin didn't have a baby boy, and that side also lost alot of the men at a young age, so the name will end. My youngest wants to change his last name to continue the name though when he gets older.

the saddest thing I found was not geneology because but that from the man himself, my father is not my father, I do not know who my father is.

Ah, I am sorry. I know the feeling because I was adopted inside of the family, my grandparents adopted me because thier daughter couldn't take care of me. They never told me until I was 12 years old and I feel that my whole life was a lie. I finially did meet my biofather, but I wasn't missing anything there. He just insulted me and he didn't even know me. But the man that raised, is more of a father than the donor was, but did you find out if your bio dad even had a choice or did they keep him away. For me, they told him to never come around, I met him when I was 20 years old.

my mother still insists that Kenneth the creep I mentioned is my dad, so the truth will go to the grave with her. If someone else is and I am sure in my heart of hearts that someone else is, I don't care anyway, this man did nothing for me either. I just never had a dad.

Sorry to hear about what was going on. I hope everything works out the way it needs to. I have been hurt in the past like that before, not fun to go through.
