Trying to track down information on family of G-Aunt Bridget Rowan last Address was 499 28th St, SanFrancisco
I have a letter from her dated May 13 1939 she stated her son or perhaps grandson Eddie was injured building the Golden Gate Bridge. I can not find any more information on her I thought perhaps there might be an Obituary somewhere that would list her family
Would appreciate any help or steering to right organization. Kathyn Brannigan Walizer

Good luck on your search!
I would suggest you go to the ssdi interactive search and if that fails go to CA index of death and if that fails try for a death certificate, at least call and submit a name and see if they could help you.


Have you had any luck with this?

If you get the death certificate, sometimes the Informant is a relative. They often show the cemetery and mortuary which also may help.
