Death certs and social security apps are helpers KB
because they knew their own parents and they lists parents names
My father-in-law was only 50 when he passed away many years ago..on his death certificate it doesn't have any info about this parents.
My mother-in-law passed away a few years ago but unfortunately we didn't have any
contact with her since 1986..it was her choice not to see us. It's a very difficult situation with my hubby's family..he has 3 younger brothers and a sister. We
see the sister once in a while, last time was in 2005. We see one of this brothers but
the two youngest ones we haven't seen in more than 15 years. We didn't even know
that she had passed away until 2 months afterwards when we received in the mail
a Holy Card with her death information..sent from one of his brothers but no return address was included, not even a note of any kind. I felt so sad for my hubby when he
read the card..but in his heart he knew that it would be this way.
