story of a war bride who disappeared, which was published in The Oregonian. Yesterday, The Oregonian published the epilog to the story: The fate of the war bride has finally been learned. Esther escaped her abusive relationship and made a new life on the other side of the country. Lilly Oddsdottir, who helped piece the information together previously, found her family.
I have to admit I didn't think Esther had survived her relationship in Oregon. I'm so glad to read that this story had a happier ending.
Genealogy is like a jigsaw puzzle, but you don't have the box top, so you don't know what the picture is supposed to look like. As you start putting the puzzle together, you realize some pieces are missing, and eventually you figure out that some of the pieces you started with don't actually belong to this puzzle. I'll help you discover the right pieces for your puzzle and assemble them into a picture of your family.
