I have been taking things slowly and carefully. I need more contact than just 1 person, I think. When the names are common, everyday names (nothing like Boris, or Vlad, or Heather, or Bertha), it makes tracking difficult.
You try, on Facebook, for friends with the same names, hoping you can make a connection. It often leads to failure or confusion.
Sometimes, it just takes a lucky break.
You may get blocked out. You may not. You may find yourself disturbing the grave of a long-hidden family secret. It's taboo; you don't know you're doing it.
Back to search. May we not offend in our search for truth. But if we do, let us pray that those who are hurt have short memories and clear consciences.
