My Search for the Family My Grandfather Never Knew

John Joseph Osborne grew up as an orphan and an only child. It was as though he had sprung from thin air fully formed. If anyone knew the real story, they weren’t sharing it.
Amy Whorf McGuiggan will take us on a compelling genealogical journey of discovery, beyond the names and dates on vital records. She had to expand her research beyond commonly available records to include both public and private institutional records. These records are often considered unavailable, but Amy did the work required to gain access.
She will probe the question of whether learning and knowing something that was previously unknown—and that one has gone through life blissfully unaware of—actually matters.
