Looking for information on my father's side. My father's name was William Franklin Green; he died in the 1970's. He lived in New York City - originally from Chicago. He was married to another woman before my mother, and had a daughter, in South Carolina. I am the oldest of four children from his marriage to my mother (now deceased), Mary Ellen Blake. I would like to find out more about my family tree from his side of the family. He was a jazz musician and played once that I know of in Carnegie Hall, NYC. I don't have birthdates for him, nor date of death. (When I last saw him, I was five years old.) I'd like to get in touch with my half sister from S.C., if possible. My maiden name, before adoption, was Cynthia Mary Green, d.o.b. 6-4-68, p.o.b. Manhattan, N.Y.
