  • A Search for Family

    Linda Brockman knew she had a redheaded half-sister. But that was all she knew. She didn't know where she lived or anything else that would be necessary to find her. But after more than 30 years of searching, Brockman's family has grown not by one but three.

    In 1975, Brockman decided to begin her search by researching her father - Leo "Steve" Wilson Rayner. She knew he had been adopted as a child and had a previous marriage. Brockman was just a child when her father died in a car crash in 1953.

    Despite her digging, she couldn't find any clues to her sister.
