OK, the Cliffs Notes version: My uncle had a girlfriend in the late 1960s. Girlfriend had a daughter from a previous marriage. Maybe. It might have been a current marriage, since hubby might have been on a ship somewhere else in the world, if you follow me.
Anyway, going thru some of parents personal stuff (that ritual that most of us have to go thru once the parents are gone), I came across this chest of personal effects (mainly pictures and scrapbooks) from my uncle’s girlfriend. How they ended up with it isn’t relevant to the discussion, but they did, and it’s been sitting in an attic for 40 years.
I wouldn’t mind trying to return this stuff to her or her child(ren) if she isn’t alive.
What I know: Unc’s GF’s maiden name. Her approximate year of birth (1942). The last name of her husband (who was not my uncle). The name and DOB of her daughter. I have no subsequent knowledge of their whereabouts after 1969, but I suspect they both moved back the the West coast.
How would be the easiest (i.e., “cheapest”) way to try to track one of them down to return these–and here’s the catch–not come across like some crackpot!
