My grandfather "disappeared" in November, 1945 from New Brunswick, New Jersey. It was an apparent suicide, although his body was never found. Many in my family have always suspected that he may have just chosen to disappear and begin a new life somewhere else. There are some reasons to suspect this. Does anybody remember this man suddenly "appearing" in their life in November-December, 1945? He would have been 55 years old at that time. He could have relocated anywhere, most likely in the United States - maybe New York, Pennsylvania or Michigan. This has been a family mystery that we have wanted closure to for many years. I would greatly appreciate anyone's help. Thank you very much.

9/11/2013 11:41 AM Did he ever go by different names? Like-Abraham Goldstein, Edward Benson Gardner or Richard Edward Clark? Something about him looks familiar. Was he friends with the Hanson/Branch family in New Brunswick NJ in the 1920's? I have taken two DNA tests to no avail to find my paternal family. Does any of this sound familiar to you? Would appreciate an answer. Thank you. Carolyn S Caprio carsmcap@strato.net
