Hi to all, another search here in the forums, as I am one of them. My biological father, "James Arthur Good" was born May 12, 1935 from Iowa. Last residence was Jacksonville, Illinois. That's all the info I have which is included on my birth certificate. My mothers maiden name was Norma Jane Shoulders from Robinson, Illinois born Sept. 2, 1935. Any suggestions on how to locate him? I have exhausted my resources and come up empty handed. My mother was extremely secretive and would cringe at the thought of me knowing about him. Only info I was told, he was in the Army, dont know the years, but i suspect in late 1950's. Never knew or were told who his relatives were. This is a nightmare of not knowing. Now I am faced with health issues I know for a fact my mothers side never had!

There's a family tree on ancestor.com for a James Arthur Good, but at this moment, I'm unable to bring it up as it's giving me an error page and a msg to try again later.
