I am writing on behalf of my mother, Yoshiko Sonobe. She is the daughter of Yasumasa and Nobuko Sonobe, who both died when she was a young girl. Her father was born in Gumma - ken. She was raised by her maternal grandfather, Hesayoshi Handa. She has a younger sister, Teruko Kubo. Teruko has at least one son, Nobuyoshi. Teruko's last known home is Iwate - ken, Kamaishi - shi, Matsubara - cho, where she was an elementary school teacher. Mom also has a half - brother, Kazuo Sonobe. She left Japan for the U.S. in 1958. We are seeking any relatives or friends who may be able to help us find them. Thank you!!
