PLEASE HELP ME! I am a Scottish lady, born in Scotland near Glasgow in May 1950 from a Scottish mother and an American father. My father was in the American army/airforce stationed in Kings Lynne England in 1949. He came from Maher Colorado and his name is Bill Bear. He was discharged from the military and sent back to America round about that time. I would like any information from anyone who thinks they may know of him or his family or if anyone knows of a way I can get any information at all. My mother's name at the time was Marie(Rita) Wilson, he called her Scotty. I have a son of 25 and a daughter 28 who would dearly love to know if they have a family somewhere in Colorado. Thankyou sincerely, Helen Wilson.
