    Question: Is it possible to find out who my father was if my whole family has passed. I found out a year ago that my sister and I are only half sisters which answers many questions as I always felt like the black sheep of the family. My sister and I don.t look anything alike whatsoever, very different personalities. Apparently my birth father was in World War 2, engaged to my mom but must have been away when she found out she was pregnant and married who I thought was my dad. Have no idea where to start or if I should just let it go.

      Hello, Lennie.
      You can try getting your DNA tested and hope that a cousin or even a sibling on your father’s side also tested.
