girl my grandfather had an affair with....years later (read: 30) my
parents FOUND his real mother, and we visited her all the time when I
was growing up, but when we went to the rest of his clan, we were told
not to say we knew his real mother.
Cut away 35 years, and I'm doing my research and decide to visit PA
and talk to (on video) my last surviving great aunt who was related to
the aunt/uncle who adopted my dad. I started the tape and told her
right off "guess what, we've known his REAL mother for FORTY YEARS"
cuz I wanted the real reaction, which was perfectly sane, tyvm. She
then went on to tell me all about the first time her brother (my
grnadfather) brought my dad to the house and said 'this is my
son'....etc....I would NEVER have had this on tape for posterity
without the deicision to confront those in the know with the truth
about what I knew, and put hte whole story together. Uncle Ed may not
want to talk about it, fine. But he sure as hell can't stop YOU from
talking about it. Too bad for Ed.
