ADVICE for locating sisters

DOBs between 1955-57, add 18 years to get thru school

look for yearbooks 73-75 for possible classmates.....

Write to the Board of Education, explain who you are and that you're looking for your half-sisters

Newspapers - beside the regular paper, many communities have their weekly "shoppers newspapers". Call the library and get the addresses for all in Portland and suburbs. Put in an ad explaining search. Ask if they'd run a small article.

Contact the senior citizen centers. Do they have newspapers/newsletters they send out ? Ad or story in them about your search.

Long shot maybe, try the VFW. The sisters may have dated or married Viet Nam War vets. Write to the local VFWs. Look for other Portland Vet groups/clubs

This is quite interesting…A while back, I purchased an old record album. On the back is an inscription that says :

From Della-Marie

Leanne Honey Bear

1970 March 23.

I went online just checking around to see if I could find Della-Marie, a bit of an unusual name. I think it's pretty coincidental to contain both sisters' names. I bought the record in Florida, somewhere around Daytona in a vintage store . If you ever find them, please drop a note. Maybe she wants her record back:) Good luck in your search.

Thanks.  My father Frank T. Palmer was married to a Joan or Foan Elise in the 50s....she had two daughters Della-Marie and Leanne Cecilia.  Trying to get any additional info.
if you know what city they lived in, maybe try for the local high school. yearbook would have classmates who might help with post high school gossip?
