"If I Knew then....."

..... I'd ask better questions of the living and not assume it would all be obvious later and too late!

This especially is true of my Grandfather - Walter Herbert Hallam.
I did interview other family relatives later and got them on tape. But it never occurred to me at the time, that I would have so much difficulty figuring out why and where his parents went missing after his younger brother was born.

There are numerous things I have run across that I naively assumed would be clear when organised together, but many connections still elude me as I try to piece together the puzzle of family relations.

The right questions asked of my grandfather would have helped immensely since with his death I have yet to find anyone else still alive who knows the answers.
