a thing i learned from the internet and verified by calling my dad

I was just checking out my family tree the other day, thinking I knew everything already, and I discovered that my Grandma Stricklan had some half-siblings I didn't know about. Her mom died when she was little, which I knew, and she was mostly raised by her grandmother, but I didn't know her father remarried and had more kids. Well, he did, and they lived in California.

(The picture is Alfred H Hanson, her grandfather, sitting in a fancy elaborate chair by a leaded glass window.)
