My father was a bit "Wild" in his younger days, and from the whispers from a few relatives on his side of the family, it makes me wonder if I might have half-siblings out there - even if he doesn't know about it.

I don't want to give extremely sensitive information out on a public forum, so if anyone has any advice or any way of helping me, please feel free to PM me. Thanks.

Okay....

Name is James Taylor Adams. dob 5/6/1956 in norton, virginia. in the mid to late 1970s he spent time in ohio, california, north carolina and virginia. He hitchhiked a lot, so I wouldn't rule out most states. He has also spent time in Colorado and New York.

How will your father react if he finds out you are doing this behind his back? You have no proof of anything... why open a can of worms? Is it worth damaging your relationship?

I don't have much of a relationship with my father. Does that answer your question? And if he had ever for one single DAY been honest with me, I wouldn't feel the need to do this. He has never once been honest about his past, except when he speaks longingly of his "free" days of hitchhiking. He has threatened, more then once to walk away and go back to his happy days throughout my childhood, so frankly, I don't really care how angry he gets about it. If I have siblings, I want to know about them. If this in any way irritates your inner compass, I don't have any hard feelings if you don't want to help. But please, don't pretend to know me, or my relationship with my father. It's been going between strained and non-existent for the last 20 years.

Furthermore, If I DO have siblings out there, I'm not even sure my father knows about them. If he does, and has been hiding it, plus not initiating contact, then, well, I've got to question the kind of person he really is.

Also, though, if anyone does want to help, please private message me with any information, as my father is still alive, and I don't want sensitive information, such as SSN or specific addresses, ect. posted on a public forum. Full name and date of birth aren't a big issue, but those kinds of things are privacy issues. Thanks.
