Surnames: Brimm/Bowman/East


My name is Michelle. I was born in Augsburg, Germany July 25th 1965. I was put up for adoption as my biological mother was single. My biological father was in Augsburg and I am told he was an American GI stationed there. I have no name to go on. I did my DNA and I am quite obviously related to Lucy Brimm who passed away in Patrick, Virginia in 1850. Another direct ancestor is Hettie Jean Bowman, who passed away in 1992. Hettie died in North Carolina. I only know this because of DNA.

I am trying to find biological family and I know they are out there. If anyone can help me it would be great. I also know from DNA that my second cousins mother was Lillie Myrtle East. Lillie passed away in 2011 and my second cousins' profile is set to private.
