Thanks for help locating father’s family

Published 3:22pm Monday, April 2, 2012

Dear Editor,

In regards to my letter that was published in December, trying to find out information about my biological father: I want to thank you for doing this.

I received an email from a lady studying genealogy, and she put me in contact by following the link online of a woman that had started a family tree of Jefferson Alan Ray.

Thanks to your help, I have found a sister I had no idea I had, and we have been talking ever since. Needless to say, she and I are very excited and looking forward to meeting one another.

Without your help this all would not have been possible. My sincere thanks to your newspaper and editor for publishing my letter.

Celia Pearcy, Portland, Ind.
