Re: third cousin of Genie
I am not sure if Rosemary is still alive. My grandmother Eva, passed away in 1998. She was the only source of news for me about that link of the family tree. I do know that both of Genie's maternal grandparents passed away several years ago (Frank and Toni Daley). They had a condo in Florida for several years prior to their deaths. Uncle Frank worked for the phone company in CT, but was also a professional magician. Aunt Toni was his assistant. She also sold real estate for awhile in CT. Uncle Frank could still perform awesome magic tricks, even into his 70's+. He gave me some of his magic props, and I still enjoy doing the tricks he taught me. But he abided by the magician's code of secrecy, and never showed me anything complex. My wife and I used to enjoy our visit with them when we lived in Florida 1979-1987.
Again, I am pleased that Genie has a fan club, and I will pop in from time to time. Ironically, I have never met Genie, since her parents moved to NJ sometime around the 50's, and the rest is history. What got me onto this website was ebay. I was cruising around the ebay site aimlessly, ending up in a celebrity memorabilia section, and saw that someone was selling Genie clippings of some sort. Out of curiosity, I then just put her name in my search engine, and up popped your website. I was quite surprised!
