Since I can remember I have always had a desire that I can not explain, to know who he was. After my Mother died I always promised myself when I was old enough I would try to find him. When I was 18 I tried to find out who he was then, to no avail. I felt quite desolate at the fact that I would never be able to find him.
Over the years one of my uncles has denied any knowledge when the matter came up too. Although I did find out around 10 to 15 years ago that he did know but point blank refused to tell me because apparently he had made a promise to my mum not tell me. But after he and my other uncle saw his death in the papers he decided he would not then be breaking his promise and that I now had a right to know.
I feel my uncles have somewhat robbed me of the opportunity of me meeting this man to find out about him and to clarify if this his him or not. Which is why I need to know so that maybe I myself can finally find out a little about who he was as a person, not to mention genetic health problems and also that I may also put some rest within my own soul about my parentage.
As far as I am aware from the obituary in the paper and from one my uncles he has no other known children.
It has been suggested to me that I should also want to know if I would be entitled to a share of his estate if it proves to be that he left a will not knowing of my existence.
But first and foremost I need to know if this man is my biological father and from what I have read dna would be easier to obtain before he is cremeated.
No appently he never married and the news paper says he leaves behind to sisters only.
I have no details for them, the paper just gives there Christian names no surnames or any other detail. Plus I am working in Portugal at present so that makes things a trifle difficult for personal investigation
Which firm would you recommend in Leeds?
Can I just ask when you say expensive are we talking hundreds or thousands?
