I recently learned that I have a half-brother I never knew about. Through some research, I was able to narrow down my brother's name and residence to Jackson, Michigan where he died in 1996 at the age of 46. According to his death record, he never married or had any children. He had no obituary.
In hopes of learning more about him, I began searching for his mother. I then learned that she had died in Hemet, CA in 2001.
I would like to find this woman's obituary and/or death record which may aid in locating other family or friends who may have known my half-brother. Unfortunately, I live in Iowa, which makes researching in California somewhat difficult. I was hoping that someone in the Hemet/Riverside County area might be welling to help me with this search.
I am looking for Marilyn J. Maxwell (maiden name Malkowski). She was born 17 Dec 1931 in Michigan, and she died 8 Feb 2001. Her last residence is listed as Hemet. I do know that the Miller-Jones Mortuary handled her arrangements, however I was told they don't keep records over 7 years.
I would appreciate any help anyone can offer. Please feel free to contact me privately with any questions.
