Re: Donati Oscar Vassar--FAMILY FOUND!

Dear Vassars:
I am writing to alert this forum that I have found my father's birth family! I simply wrote all the Vassars in Minnesota that I located on Facebook. After about six months of waiting, one of the women I reached out to revealed herself to be the wife of one of my father's cousins by birth. She put me in touch with my dad's still-living elder brother and sister. I've seen photographs of my dad's mom. I finally know who I resemble in the family. Facebook, for all its annoyances, was a godsend in this regard! My father has visited with his elder brother, and he keeps in e-mail contact with his elder sister who lives in another state. I also was able to e-mail my birth aunt, who shared some interesting family history with me. I am so pleased to have been able to find my father's siblings while they and he are still alive.
