Thanks for reading!
Diane: Small world!! Ethel E Pollock was my Aunt whom I never met. My Dad was George F. Pollock 1916/1943 whom I also never knew because he Died when I was only 6 Months old. I have just this week joined ancestry.com and began researching my roots. Perhaps we could share some info. Just got a copy of my Dad's and Granddad"s death cert, they were both George F Pollock. I also have 4 siblings (three in Mass and one in N H) one brother is also George F Pollock (the third).Long story short - Victor is my first cousin once removed - his father and my grandmother were siblings. I didn't know that his father had even existed because, at that time, I didn't know a whole lot about the Pollock family. The more we talked, the more I learned about Victor and his four siblings. Their father, George, had died of heart disease when they were very small children. Their mother, Ruby, had given the kids - Victor, George, Reggie, Marion and Ruby - away to foster care and had walked away, never looking back. The five of them lived horrendous lives, going from foster home to foster home, suffering terrible abuse. The whole time thinking that the only family they had in the world - was each other. George has written about their experiences in both his blog and his book, State Kid.
Got to go, perhaps some time we could share info. I live in Mass.
