    I believe this man to be my husband’s biological father. I did not realize he was in Seattle when he passed, although I did know he passed. How do I find out if this was him? Any ideas? His name, birth and death dates all match. His place of residence does not though. My husband doesn’t remember what his father looked like. He was 3 years old when his father disappeared.
