I was born in 83 and raised in Lackawanna County, PA. My father's name was also John but he died when I was a toddler. I was raised by my maternal grandparents and my mother was absentee, so I know very little about my dad. I know he worked as a security guard at the University of Scranton for a period of time. I know it's a long shot, but if you think we may share a genealogy please send me a mail or reply. I've always been into history and not knowing the people that made essentially 50% of who I am today never sat well with me. Thanks in advance!
