My Name is Nancy Collins, I live in California. When I was two my father left and somehow I managed on my own to find him when I was 13. We developed a close relationship over time until the day he died in 2008. He left me with information that I must pursue. I have been looking for 6 years but not until recently I got no where..
I am looking for a brother who was born in Germany sometime between 1973-1974. My father was able to give me limited information before he died. Dads name is Michael Eugene Collins DOB 06/11/54 in San Diego, Died March 12 2008. He was in the US ARMY stationed in Berlin, and Bavaria. He met Ingeborg Zelle or Zeller (zel, Zell, sel, Selli) the name sometimes has a C instead of Z and not so sure of the spelling. Ingeborg or Inge had a sister named Gabrielle who was a teacher at a university just outside of Berlin and, their family owned a helicopter parts store or helicopter company with the name being their last name and sold parts to the US military. So this child (boy)was born before me (1978 me) around 1973-1974 and my father who was already back here in the states was told my the MP's in 1981 that he had a son and mom was looking for him. This means to me the mom kept the son I believe. He has 2 sisters, 1 bother, a grandmother Beverly Jones Cuffell , a aunt who are still alive and 5 nieces and nephews. I will upload a military pic once I receive it and I have already requested military records so will update when I get them. My grandmother recently told me that the father possibly was a sp* bermieister (mayor?) of a town and that he wanted my father to return and work for him. She also mentioned something about Zeigler.. Again thank you for reading :-).
