Seeking friends of a long lost person in Newport

Hi,

I'm from Germany and hope to get some help here.

I have a friend who was adopted. She found out that her mother was a german war bride and has been murdered 1961 in Miami, FL. She never met her.

After a very long search over 30 years she found her 2 halfbrothers. But there has been another brother. His name was Robert Christian Block, born in Germany 1946.

His mother entered the US in 1948 and they lived in Brooklyn, NY.

We found out that Robert left NY in 1963 to Santa Ana, CA. Then he lived in Portland, OR. His last address was in Newport, OR. He died 2003 in Corvallis.
My friend never met her brother and he never knew that he had a sister. Probably he didnt know he was born in Germany because his SSDI states to be born in Brooklyn. But that's definitely wrong.
I tracked him down in Germany at the registration office.

Now we are looking for people who might have known him.

Any ideas where to look or whom to ask?

Thanks a lot

"Any ideas where to look or whom to ask?" I checked Yahoo.com for you, found four listed:
1. Inglewood, CA 90301
2. Lansdale, PA 19446
3. Noblesville, IN 46060 or 46062
4. Palo Alto, CA 94301

Maybe one of them is who you are looking for. Go to YAHOO.COM , search on name, will find phone numbers.
